Five a Day


Five a Day

Qdos Creates was commissioned by Public Health, Barnsley to produce a short production for the re-launch of the Barnsley Smoke-Free Tobacco Control Alliance. 'Five a Day' was first performed at a conference for operational and frontline health professionals to work towards creating a smoke free generation in the future. It has also performed at a health and wellbeing event for Doncaster College students studying 'Health and Social Care' and 'Access to Work and Life Skills. The poduction is followed by a discussion and participatory workshop for the students, exploring the dangers of smoking for individuals, their families and the wider community.

'Five a Day' was researched and devised by Qdos Creates and combined dance, physical theatre and text including a live version of the song 'Move it On' written by Maria Lynch. This song was taken from the 'Time Between Times' album.

The story is of a pregnant woman, her daighter and the effects of tobacco on the family and community.

'Kelly is pregnant, isolated and desperate to quit smokig but she doesn't see the effects smoking and selling illicit tobacco have on herself, he family and the wider community.'

"Outstanding...... The impact of smoking , physical, emotional, socil, environmental came across loud and clear.... Well researched , brilliantly acted."

The piece has also been performed for Performing Arts students at Cheserfield College and Barnsley College.
