How do elderly Asian men and women feel about growing older in a land so far from where they were born? Basaira Elderly Centre Streatham and Peckham Elderly Asian Group have worked with Rosetta Life in a programme funded by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity. The result is a dramatic exploration of adventures of emigration, loss of culture and community, deaths they’ve experienced, the support they offer each other in order to survive.
See this unique drama with music, dance and storytelling performed by members of these Elderly Asian Groups together with a professional cast of actors, dancers and musicians. Written and produced by Lucinda Jarrett (Rosetta Life).
