On Saturday November 9th the Manchester Camerata and Louise Wallwein scooped the award for Best Performance at Manchester Culture Awards.
Regarded as global leader in creative music making with people with dementia, Manchester Camerata joined forces Wallwein and Sue Roberts – director and dramaturg to create and develop this powerful performance.
Created through a programme of public engagement and working with younger people with dementia and their families, this uncompromising piece is an 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.
Steve Dauncey Manchester Camerata Chair said:
“We’re very proud to have won the Best Performance award at this year’s Culture Awards. The award recognises the work we do with those who live with early onset dementia. Louise and the Hidden Company co- created this performance piece with individuals from Greater Manchester to bring their experiences to an audience, in an extremely powerful and moving way. This is Camerata in the Community at its very best and we look forward to seeing this work go from strength to strength.”
