Writer Finn Beames and composer Santa Bušs are developing a new opera about living with aphasia.
We are looking for people with aphasia to collaborate with us for 3 more workshops.
We have had an idea for the story of the opera, based on a living American woman who has aphasia. She fought discrimination to change the law in an inspiring and powerful way. She is called Ruby McDonough.
We want to share our research with you to see what you think, and explore how your talents could help tell the story. We also want to include your stories!
We want to make sure that people with different communication needs can enjoy and understand the opera.
We want to create roles for people with aphasia to perform, alongside professional singers.
The new dates are: Wednesday 6th, Wednesday 13th and Wednesday 20th February. Sessions are from 1-4pm.
