‘Mementos’ is 3rd Stage Dance project that works with people of different ages to explore ideas and feelings around loss, legacy and death. The project is funded by B&NES council and was born from ‘The Parting’, an Arts Council funded performance by 3rd Stage choreographed by Kerry Biggn (New Adventures, James Cousins).

Working across schools, a hospital and residential setting, the ‘Mementos’ team introduce the theme through creative writing exercises, before creating the soundtrack and movement for each group.

‘Mementos’ culminated in a community performance, bringing each group together for a celebratory sharing in Radstock on 21 October. With co-investment from PDSW, 3rd Stage will starting work in 2016 with Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, creating work with young dancers as part of the exhibition ‘Death:the human experience’.
