Tatties and Typhoid Ham is a filmed fusion of live evolving visual art, music, poetry and spoken word, wherein three women born and bred in Aberdeen share their thoughts and experiences on being in lockdown during the typhoid outbreak in 1964 and their concurrent situation during the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. The women speak about mental health, socio-political divides, and the practical implications of lockdowns with regard to food supplies, finances, family, and social relations.
