Heather's next appearance
Six Kinds of Friendship
A musical and visual piece using Soundbeam technology in which adults with a learning disability explore friendship through sound and movement. Six Kinds of Friendship was composed during a period of workshops in the 6 towns of Sandwell over a period of 6 weeks and was first performed in Tipton in February 2008. It was performed again in July 2008 as part of the opening celebrations at The Public, West Bromwich, and in September 2008 for Birmingham ArtsFest (see company photo).
Because we care
we love to share,
greet each other,
remembering the past,
and celebrate friendships that last.

Songs from the Invisible
Witty lyrical song, poetry and instrumental improvisations, an extraordinary cornucopia of a performance, touching a vast range of different themes and threads. Heather’s work is touching and thought provoking, and she is joined in performance by some of the people who have inspired her.
