Event description

Description

A shadow puppet performance of 'Where are you now?' by Karin Andrews-Jashapara, Play of Light theatre. This is a collaboratively developed piece which explores findings from research with families of people in vegetative and minimally conscious states conducted at the Coma and Disorders of Consciousness Research Centre.

Shadow puppets are used to animate sections of interviews - using the real voices of family members talking about the dilemmas of caring for someone with catastrophic brain injuries - and their thoughts on end of life decision-making

This is a fifteen minute performance followed by discussion with the producer and the researchers about the issues raised, and the process of translating research into creative theatre

Note: Not suitable for children. Includes difficult material. Strobe lighting at the beginning

You might also be interested in an event earlier at the same venue: Cathy Rentzenbrink reading from her memoir 'The Last Act of Love' - tickets for this on eventbrite too
