This week, Art and Soul is about the performing arts. 89.1 WEMU’s Lisa Barry is joined by Jenn McKee and the artistic director of Kickshaw Theatre in Ann Arbor Lynn Lammers talking about their current show, "Milvotchkee, Visconsin."
Lynn Lammers describes experiences at the Kickshaw Theatre in one word: "curiosity." In other words, they search for production that would take the audience out of their comfort zones. "Milvotchkee, Wisconsin" certainly fits this description, as the story explores the impacts of dementia. The play is told entirely from the dementia patient's perspective.
