***PLEASE NOTE: There will now be only 1showing of 'Somethings' on Thurday 13th July @ 8pm
Imagine you are in the future, reading the last newspaper ever written, all other news has been destroyed and all you have to learn of the world today is by what is written here. A handful of people and what they have to say on this very day will shape what we believe was the world of the past. They have decided what you should know, what is important and what somethings should be carried into the future.
Devised by a company of performers with intellectual disability, Shadowbox and Gemma Gallagher are back in Mermaid working with a cracking creative team. Come with us on a journey of the imagination entering a world where merging sounds, movements and images tell a story of frustration, loss and hope for the future. Begging us to look again, look with different eyes.
It is important to Mermaid that the work we present reflects the rich array of creative people in our community. What working with shadowbox represents is artistic excellence and ambition. The artists on stage are nothing short of remarkable. Engagement in Arts and Culture helps us all to expand our horizons, we learn to collaborate, empathise and problem solve but what these artists will do is share with us and in so doing they will teach us. They will teach us more than what they themselves have learned – what we will see is democracy, inclusivity and equality – it’s a must see!
