Pegasus supports unique theatrical performance as part of the 9th UK Dementia Congress

Brighton-based Pegasus, the UK’s leading independent health communications consultancy, is pleased to be supporting Naomi’s Flight - a bold and unique theatrical performance tour that highlights the impact of dementia in a visually stunning and powerful way – in its inaugural visit to the UK this week.

Brought to the UK by Dementia Care Matters, a leading dementia care organisation, and supported by sponsors Pegasus, Bupa and Brunelcare,  ‘Naomi's Flight’ combines theatrical storytelling with daring aerial acrobatics on three suspended metal sculptures to present an intensely personal drama and often humorous perspective of a family coping with age, diabetes, and dementia. Performer, Mara Neimanis, draws on her own experience of her mother's diabetes and dementia and her 81 year old father's challenges as the primary caregiver for her mother, to reveal the enduring bonds and obligations of love as well as a world that is upside down and inside out.  

The first performance of ‘Naomi’s Flight’ forms part of the 9th UK Dementia Congress, the largest annual dementia-focused event in the UK & Europe, which is this year being hosted in Brighton. Further public performances are also being held during the course of this week.
  Jo Spadaccino, Director at Pegasus, commented: “We are delighted to be sponsoring such a moving and educational performance, which highlights the challenges both dementia patients and carers are facing every day. 

Our support of the show has been borne out of a shared desire to shine a light on what is fast becoming the biggest health and care problem of a generation, through impactful and creative communications techniques.

Personalized Oncology: Calling for a New Kind of Partnership:
In the 1990s, biomarkers were the future of personalized medicine and a “lab on a chip” was the holy grail of understanding patient health. As much as past predictions of whole organ transplants and intra-body cameras have been realized, the notion of using measuring an array of protein to better understand a patient’s individual health, current and future, has still eluded us. But maybe for not much longer.
