Home Alone is a project from artist Sharon Bailey to actively engage isolated older people from various parts of the North East – including East Durham, who find themselves in their own home for long periods of time.
For eight months Sharon visited twelve older people who live at home, alone. She photographed and recorded their chats, spending hours talking and listening.
For Home Alone Sharon is bringing some of these untold stories out of the houses into busy public spaces. These stories are important and need to be told and we all need to listen.
Our social care system is in crisis and things have to change.
Sharon’s installation is presented as a specially constructed living room and includes a commissioned monologue written by Catrina McHugh MBE and inspired by Sharons Home Alone diaries. Theatre Direction is by Laura Lindow and the actress performing is Barbara Heslop
When: Saturday 14th September 11-3pm (Performances 1pm & 2pm)
