Collaborative work raises dementia awareness
November 27, 2016
Still, Here is a collaborative play about the world of dementia, being performed tomorrow night (Monday, November 28) at The Casa on Hope Street.
Presented by Potentially Brilliant Productions
, this Lottery-funded piece is a culmination of 12 weeks of workshops in which participants shared their personal and professional experience of living with dementia. The company is an offshoot of Casa-based Burjesta Theatre and Still, Here is directed by Mikyla Durkan. They say: “At times moving, at others funny, ultimately, it has the shared goal – to acknowledge the disease of dementia, which effects so many people and to raise awareness using theatre, drama, poetry and sound.”
It’s on for one night only, from 8pm, t
ickets are £3 (£5 solidarity price) and can be reserved on 07590 458 297 – or pay on the door. The one-hour performance (which contains strong language and is not suitable for children) will be followed by a Q&A.
