“Off the Middle – In Other Words” – dementia and the power of music @ University of Leeds, Stage 1
Feb 25 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

This performance has been written and performed by Matthew Seager, a graduate from University of Leeds who in his final year worked with people in an older person’s care home, using music and multi-sensory performance practices to stimulate memory. The project was highly successful and proved to be life-changing for Matt, and he has gone on to explore this in new writing. The play has received fantastic reviews, and is a great example of what can be produced when Arts and Health interests come together.

The event is at stage@leeds, a dedicated theatre space located just behind Leeds University Union on the University of Leeds campus. The building is well signposted from the Parkinson building steps on Woodhouse Lane, and you can also find it on our campus map: http://www.leeds.ac.uk/campusmap?location=5179.

There is level access into the venue and a hearing assistance system. There’s full access information here: https://www.accessable.co.uk/venues/stage-leeds

Inspired by two real stories, the play explores with humour and insight the impact of early onset dementia on two very different families – a journey of love, loss and duty.

the play is subtly powerful, sympathetic and sharp, sad and funny……. Where dementia is the villain, words are priceless’ Howard Jacobson, Booker Prize winning author (New Statesman, 2016).

 

This play has had more than 150 performances throughout the UK.

There is no charge for entry, but donations would be welcomed.
