UPCOMING FALL 2019
ALONE/TOGETHER is an interdisciplinary and intergenerational performance piece consisting of three main projects which seek to engage artists and elders in beneficial processes of collaborative creativity through partnerships with established cultural and community centers. Co-Produced by Sarah Bernstein and Kelly Nesbitt with support from Susan Kocen.
Nesbitt is a performance artist, producer, and an occupational therapist of 20 years. Nesbitt has produced tours, facilitated theatrical workshops, and received grants for interdisciplinary ensemble work. Nesbitt is excited to be merging the worlds of Art and Aging in Alone/Together.
*This patient/family gave permission for this photo/story to be shared. This man was a patient of mine when I worked as an Occupational Therapist at Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans. I was there on a work travel assignment. After a 2 month ICU stay, this man flew back to his home state of Maine (on a medial flight). When I returned to Maine a month later (my home state at the time) he was a patient of mine again! The world is a small one.
