Memory Ensemble is a unique collaboration between the Feinberg School of Medicine and the Lookingglass Theater Company aimed at improving the quality of life for people suffering from early stages of memory loss. The program is in the form of a 7 week session that gives participants a supportive environment in which they can communicate freely and share their emotions. The Memory Ensemble team makes the participants perform a theatrical improvisation-a method that welcomes the expression of all words and feelings that occur during memory loss.
