Hidden – BBC Contains Strong Language Festival

Date: Sunday 29th September 2019

“What would dementia look like? It would look like a broken-down cello, all the strings stretched and breaking.”

Hidden is a new theatre piece written by award-winning poet, playwright and performer, Louise Wallwein (MBE), created through a programme of public engagement and creative enquiry into the lived experience of young onset dementia. Hidden addresses the challenges that both people living with young onset and their loved ones are faced with in a powerful and uncompromising piece.

After a successful tour of 7 performances in June, ‘Hidden’ will be performed at BBC Contains Strong Language Festival in Hull this September.
