A Silent Thread
A Silent Thread unravels the journey of a sister and her adopted brother, a passionate
musician and music teacher, as early stages of onset dementia affect his personal
relationships. Which friendships and family ties remain and which fall away?
Inspired by true stories collected by residents of Blackhall Colliery, East Durham Dementia Friendly Choir (which featured in the performance) this touching yet uplifting 50 minute performance with original music, explores how we stay connected to what we love.
