Jack and Jill and the Red Post Box
Jack and Jill and the Red Postbox is a sensitive, humorous and challenging performance which encourages us to think about how we live and work alongside those in our communities who have a diagnosis of dementia. Using nursery rhymes, live and recorded sound/music and images, the performance invites us to follow the journeys of Jack and Jill and those who live among them, as they encounter considerable changes in their everyday life events. This fictionalised performance has been inspired by 89 anonymous transcripts, collected in a research project in Northumberland: the ?Risk and Resilience: living with dementia' project. The stories are based upon ?common' themes which help us to explore questions involving changes in identity, sense of place and roles within community and society.
