Tangles in Time

September 13-14, 2019

Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral, Philadelphia

Tangles in Time is an original Theater of Witness performance created and performed by people living with dementia, care partners and health professionals and students. Based on the performers’ own true stories of love, loss, illness and caring, the production weaves together live performance with original music, film and visual imagery.

Presented by Thomas Jefferson University and Theater of Witness, Tangles in Time invites all people to connect and build empathy—even through changes in memory and time.

Co-produced by Teya Sepinuck, Founder and Artistic Director, Theater of Witness, and Megan Voeller, Director of Humanities, Thomas Jefferson University.
