Jack and Jill
From Dalbir Kang on June 30th, 2016
This was originally a fictionalised play, written, performed and produced by Skimstone Arts, Newcastle, and inspired by findings from a piece of research undertaken by Edinburgh and Northumbria Universities.
The research was funded by the (then titled) NHS North of Tyne and was led by Professor Charlotte Clarke at the University of Edinburgh in collaboration with Dr Cathy Bailey, Senior Research Fellow and Dr Catherine Gibb, Senior Lecturer, both at Northumbria University.
We subsequently secured funding from Edinburgh and Northumbria Universities and produced the film in this Vimeo. The filming was done in Felton Northumberland, and premiered in Gallery 45 in Felton on Sunday 13th December 2015.
An interview about the background and making of the film is available at:
We would very much appreciate feedback in the Comments below on how you have used the film and in what ways in contributes to your thinking about dementia. Thank you.
A physical theatre performance has also been developed and tours with the support of an Arts Council for England award.
