Inspired and informed by deeply personal experiences, Ruth Pieloor turns her trademark magic realism into an oddly comic, yet breathtaking and touching realisation of dementia.
Demented uniquely intercepts clowning, puppetry, and dramatic dialogue, to share a heroine’s captivating relationship with dementia.
We meet Rachel, the mother, the daughter, the carer, the lover, the artist, and gently take her hand as she unravels new challenges in her family’s tapestry of memories, and the legacy it leaves in its wake.

‘A compelling multi-disciplinary drama cleverly embracing humour among imaginative and inventive opportunities for creatives seeking alternatives for exploring difficult contemporary topics.’ — Bill Stephens OAM, Australian Arts Review

We acknowledge that we live and create on unceded lands. We pay our respects to the First Peoples of Australia, and to their elders past, present and future.
