Artist Talk: Becky Shaw

Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery
Wednesday 14 April 2010 6pm

Artist Becky Shaw will talk about her work as part of Art Sheffield 2010. A: The Christmas Party is a play, written during a residency with Age Concern. The script records the six times that a care worker and artist visit an elderly dementia-sufferer in her home. ‘A’s language has been severely disrupted by dementia and when the carers try to engage her, ‘A’ speaks in rhyme, combining popular songs and nursery rhymes in ever-varying combinations. Through her limited words ‘A’ manages to communicate many things. The play presents the tragedy and, often surreal, comedy of care, and the extraordinary determination people have to communicate.Click here for more information about the work.

A: The Christmas Party is broadcast on Sheffield Live! 93.2fm, Fridays 9.30-10.00am until 16 April
