Jack and Jill
‘Jack and Jill & The Red Postbox’ encourages the audience to think about how they live and work alongside those in their communities who have a diagnosis of dementia.
This was originally a fictionalised play, written, performed and produced by Skimstone Arts 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 shown here. 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: vimeo.com/151024848
A physical theatre performance has also been developed and tours with the support of an Arts Council for England award.
We would very much like to know how you use this film and what difference it makes to you. Please do email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know or if you have any questions.
