Helena Waldmann is a stage magician, questioning conventions, her work sensual and thought-provoking. Compelling, bizarre and funny, Get a Revolver explores the social stigma of dementia – while it doesn’t aim to elicit sympathy, it hits us hard with our own preconceptions. Superb dancer Brit Rodemund, a classical ballerina with dazzling presence, gives a poignant face to memory loss.
