Foan and Fortune

We are Helen Foan & Marie Fortune. We have been collaborating creatively since 2011 in all things puppetry including concept design, make, direction, consultation and performance. Creating dynamic theatre of the highest quality with magic at the heart.

We will be exploring the world of Young Onset Dementia. Using our time at Metal to explore our collected research and experimenting with different ways of bringing the stories, concepts and ideas to life using puppetry, object manipulation, VR, text and movement. Our goal is to create conversations around the experiences of living with Young Onset Dementia.

We will invite specialists into our work to assist us in looking at the unique, diverse symptoms associated with Young Onset Dementia. Exploring the senses, the nervous system and the brain; we will play with various means to bring these processes to life.
