Dementia-Arts Live Performance: Dementia Connect and FACT present Hidden Voice
Friday 13 April / 4pm – 5.15pm / The Box, FACT / FREE, booking required
Demonstrating the vanguard in arts-health, we are delighted to host composer John McHugh and a trio of musicians from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra to perform Hidden Voice. This unique multimedia piece gives a voice to people living with dementia through the melodies of their speech. Featuring real life testimonies of people living with dementia, family members and carers, McHugh turns the lyrics of everyday life into a powerful and poetic message. As described by Professor Alistair Burns, NHS Clinical Director for Dementia, Hidden Voice aims to make you think, to raise questions and make you reevaluate your feelings about one of the most important issues of our time.
Hidden Voice is supported by Music In Mind is a charity to promote the use of music as an aid to public health and wellbeing, learning and creativity. Innovative projects and performances aim to raise awareness around important social issues and give a voice to a cause.
This is a free event. Guests who wish to attend the performance at 4pm should register via Eventbrite.
