Seurantalo Kirkkotie 17, 95110 Kuivaniemi kirkonkylä

The event kicked off on Saturday 3.8 at noon with a theatrical performance at the Herra Alzheimer in Kuivaniemi kirkonkylä
The performance was an open public event, but there were dozens of people attending the family meeting.
Admittedly, the role of the family was not limited to the audience, as Pentti Ellilä and Antti Ellilä were cast in the lead role.

The background of the play is the Ii Institute Ii Institute Civic College and Art School.
Each year it organizes a course called “The Role Changers” for anyone interested in acting.
The aim of this course is to produce an annual summer performance that will be presented at local summer events.
It gives you a complete picture of the conversion of text into a finished presentation.
The teacher is now Sanna Kluuker, who has also directed the play by Herra Alzheimer.

The playwright Kuivaniemi’s Role Changers has performed this play in several arenas during the summer and fall of 2019.
However, this is a hobby activity, and perhaps that is why the participants put themselves in the game seriously, that is, their attitude is “nurtured”, which is also rewarded by the audience.

According to the playwright, Mr Alzheimer is a comedic story about a man who, in addition to a possible disease, has peculiar features and is not always known to people in the care sector.
Dementia is probably the topmost disease, but a woman may not always be sure where to go about cunning and illness.
One professor thinks this play is therapeutic for the people around them.

Would marriage help, or should the ration dose be increased.
The care of Mr. Alzheimer (Pentti Ellilä) requires a creative mind from a doctor (Pekka Riepula) and a wife (Sirkka Junes).
The protagonist’s close circle does not always keep track of whether the man is driven by a desire to fight or memory.

Over time, the river has transported sand so that you can wade a long way from the shore before reaching the depth of swimable water.
