This live performance will combine music, poetry and research to address the taboo surrounding mental health and grief in older people. We will present a series of poems crafted from interviews with bereaved older adults that will take you on a journey of grief – through the ups and downs. We will focus not only on the sadness but also on the resilience, strength and remarkable courage that can come from a significant loss. We will come together in support of all people who have lost someone and challenge the notion that grief has an expiry date. Join research psychologist Dr Katrin Gerber, concert violinist Sarah Curro and actors Marylla Powell and Home and Away star Dennis Coard at Tempo Rubato in Brunswick on Sunday 31 July 2022 at 4 pm.
