My home, my castle, my container, my prison?
How do we imagine the future of where and how we live? Who will we live with? What can we afford? What will our lives look like and how will we manage? This sensitive, humorous and moving performance, with original songs and live soundscapes, explores:
Behind our doorbells and front doors, how are we dreaming of the future?
Doorbells: Dreaming for the Future is a humorous, poignant and reflective film about the wonderful world of imaginative and surreal lands that enable survival of being alone, and where magical journeys unfold to transport us beyond the everyday.
Doorbells: Dreaming for the Future has been commissioned by Care & Repair England and Elders Council of Newcastle, supported by Northumbria University.
Monday 19 November, 5.30 pm
B&D Gallery, B&D Studios, Floor 3, Commercial Union House, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 6QE
Supported by Elders Council.
Due to a successful grant from Newcastle City Council we are creating a new version of Peace Procession, inspired by real stories, as part of Holocaust Memorial Day in January 2019.
We are asking if anyone has any memories or stories either about themselves, loved ones or family experiences that are relevant to the theme of ‘Torn from Home.’
We recognise the sensitivity of sharing these stories and so would like to offer a calm, safe place, with refreshments, to share them, or, where appropriate to visit a home, centre, or meeting place where the stories can be shared, using an artistic exchange.
Wednesday 30 January, drop in between 12pm and 2pm (performances last for 15 minutes and will be taking place on a rolling basis).
Newcastle City Library, 33 New Bridge St West, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 8AX
Free, no booking required.
