"Getting to a Better Place" is an improvised performance created from poems that capture the essence of conversations with parents of children with disability and additional needs. This is a collaboration between academics from health and arts that aims to generate insight into and dialogue about lives punctuated by illness and disability. The piece was first performed at TATE Liverpool as part of Concurrent #3. It comes under the research themes of (i) arts for wellbeing and children, (ii) adolescents and their families. Choreography: Michelle Man, design: Sidsel Bech, music: Stephen Davismoon; dancers: Rachel Hancock, Tim Merrifield, Katie Threlfall; academics from health: Lucy Bray, Bernie Carter; developed with the support of Vicky Karkou.
