‘Die Hilflose Hand’

“I was better off as a stranger. Rather that than playing the role of myself so long ago. A time I hoped to forget. A time I hoped she’d long forgotten during the process of forgetting herself.”

Flash opera about dementia premiered in concert at St James’s Church, Sussex Gardens, in 2015.
