This video and sound score is part of ‘He (and me)’ - a project in development, featuring the lives and stories of Nathan Arbuckle and his mum Jemima Hoadley.
Nathan is 15 years old, has Down’s syndrome, Type 1 diabetes, an overactive thyroid and an obsession with Romeo and Juliet. His mum and carer, Jemima, is a dance artist.
The soundscore was created by composer Jennifer Bell and features conversations and interviews with Jemima and Nathan. Songs use verbatim quotes from these conversations.
The video footage, shot and edited by film artist Roswitha Cheshire, documents the early creation and rehearsal process at Metal Chalkwell.
This film was presented at The Space in Between, Unlimited Festival, at The Royal Festival Hall, Southbank on 6 September 2018.
