In 2016, in the initial tour of the Victoria Project, Dulcinea Langfelder & Co created for the first time an event around the play, Victoria, to pay tribute to seniors and persons experiencing loss of autonomy, and to those who care for them: family and professional caregivers. On Thursday, December 7th, Seniors and Caregivers Day returns for its second edition, this time at the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce Cultural Centre in Montreal, helping us spread Victoria’s message of hope further in the community.
On the agenda of activities for this day are two performances of Victoria, in French at 1:30 pm with Anne Sabourin and in English at 7:30 pm with Dulcinea Langfelder; a roundtable discussion, ‘Caring for seniors... and caregivers’, with several distinguished speakers; aworkshop, ‘Concilier travail, famille et rôle de proche aidant : outils et ressources pour équilibrer le quotidian’, led by Anne-Laure Marcadet; a photo exhibit, ‘Regard-e-moi’, on the iconographic representation of the aging woman, by the artists Mélissa Giguère and Frédérique Dubé; and apost-show discussion in the evening. Also throughout the day, various community organisations will be holding information booths in the lobby of the Maison de la culture, presenting the available support services for seniors and caregivers in the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough.
Centered on a play that has moved audiences around the world for 18 years, this event aims to bring us together around issues that concern us all.
All activities are free, including tickets for both presentations of the play.
