CBC Radio's Daybreak Alberta connects the province through music, chat and weekend culture. From the arts to the news, retail therapy to health tips, music to chat, leave the workweek behind with your host, Russell Bowers.
Puppeteer, Michelle Warkintin, and her family had to face the reality of dymentia when a family member started to display symptoms of the disease and finally came to forget those to which she had been so close.
As part of the Calgary Fringe Festival (August 3-11), Michelle will be performing the show, "Mii Other Woman," a tale for a character she created who also has succumbed to dymentia. The show challenges what we imagine is the internal life of someone who's forgotten their past, but also how we should feel about being forgotten.
