"TANGLES” is a dynamic musical and a multidisciplinary educational and outreach initiative that uniquely fuses traditional theatrical storytelling with research to engage healthcare providers, patients, families, and caregivers in dialogue, education, and healing related to aging and the impact of neurocognitive disorders.

“TANGLES” tells the story of a family during one pivotal night as they come to terms with their roles as sons, daughters, and siblings living with an aging family member. Through music, media, and a dynamic design, the production shows how memories and the past are interconnected in ways that both fragment and bring together families in the toughest moments. Each performance is accompanied by a talk-back lead by medical professionals.
