Imagine this...It is becoming increasingly difficult to discern the difference between the present and the past, between what is familiar and what is foreign. Events that took place just minutes ago are being constantly erased, while memories that you have been able to keep at bay for decades now come rushing towards you. The realm of memory remains a great mystery and Sundowner’s Syndrome remains an unanswered question. Why is it that just as the sun goes down, so many of those with Alzheimer’s become particularly disorientated and confused? This breathtaking performance traverses sorrow, fears and human dignity. Through the eyes of three generations, Sundowner tells the story of so many Australian families. If our parent is no longer the person we know, how can we care for them in the present and also honour their memory? Sundowner is a story of love: love of family, love of history, an love of life.
