Part of: Storyhouse Elders, Accessible Performances

Join the Dominoes and Oware tournament, with music, this is one garden party not to be missed!

Dominoes and Dahlias [+ Oware!] has been created with older people from the African and African Caribbean diaspora led by artist Cheryl Martin with musician Clive Hunte.

We welcome our friends from the inspiring Elders programme at the Royal Exhange Theatre, Manchester to perform at Storyhouse for the first time. They believe (and we agree here at Storyhouse) that “Elders aren’t just older – they’re wiser. In a good society, older people are respected for their experience, for their knowledge and for everything they can teach us.”

Where can you meet a woman artist from 1922 Benin, a feisty Ghanian student nurse standing up to a blinkered matron in 1971, and a Jamaican lad going on holiday and suddenly finding himself facing a throng of brothers and sisters he never knew existed?

This show will include Live Captions which means there will be subtitles running on a TV screen. This makes the show accessible for people who are Deaf, deaf or hard of hearing
