Vaudevisuals interview with Eric Bass and Ines Zeller Bass – “D-Generation: An Exaltation of Larks”

A piece about play, joy, and communication. A piece about dementia.

EricBass

D-Generation: An Exaltation of Larks is a full-length theater piece based on stories written collaboratively by groups of people with late-stage dementia. The work is performed by three puppeteers (the caregivers) and five puppets (the residents of a care-facility). Set to a compelling original score and striking animated video segments, D-Generation takes us into a world that is all too much a part of our lives.
