THOSE ORN US YOU P’RAPS CAN’T SEE (Discussion on development of piece)
The Whiting’s On The Wall (Norwich)
“Inspired by the themes of a poem I wrote during lockdown called ‘Thas not about you, thas about me’, I hope to explore the unheard voices of Norfolk’s over 65’s, offering a space where our older generation feels valued respected and listened to.”
The elderly population is growing and Norfolk has over 6% more people aged over 65 than the rest of England. With so many people in this age group, why then are their stories not shaping the way we see our shared experience? Why are some of the most vulnerable in our society unheard? What are we missing by not listening to our older generation? I seek to challenge the dominant narrative and ask ‘whose voices are we REALLY listening to?’.

Helen Wells (Norwich)
A community generated video and performance.
An ever-expanding network of people have shared their experiences of nature and the local environment that have supported, excited and inspired them to keep going through these difficult times. At the same time they have become increasingly aware of the value of the environment and what we risk loosing.
The video and performance give form and voice to these experiences and the power of sharing our wonder in the world.
Take Part: If you would like to take part in the project, email Helen Wells for more information.

NATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH
Ann Hirst (Suffolk)
All Davina wants is to get her family around the table for one last meal before her eldest kid leaves home. How hard can it be?How long have you got?
Through conversations and phone-calls with various family members and her best friend, Davina invites you into her beautifully ordinary world with all its joys, hilarities, frustrations and disappointments.
Natters of Life & Death is a rich, slice of life, confessional comedy about family, motherhood, the testing of patience and the shock of seeing your own side-boob after far too long.
