The Old Operating Theatre is a 17th Century surgery and herb garret near to Guy’s Hospital; it is an incredibly special venue, and stages events allied to its primary aims as a museum. http://www.thegarret.org.uk/
Delirium is being performed during London Creativity & Wellbeing Week – a capital-wide celebration of work which crosses the boundaries between arts and health. http://creativityandwellbeing.org.uk/
It is estimated that up to 80% of people in intensive care units experience delirium. This project is based on interviews with people who have been through this profound and disturbing experience. Further details can be found in the rest of this blog. Delirium will also be performed in Bristol on 25th June as part of the Culture, Health & Wellbeing international conference: http://www.culturehealthwellbeing.org.uk/
Delirium has been generously funded by the PRS for Music Foundation’s Women Make Music grant scheme.
