Shapeshifting: The Spectacle of Depression and Anxiety

1 Jan, 1970 at 12:00 am - 15 Sep, 2016 at 12:00 am

Join Priya Mistry for a performance of The Musical Mental Health Cabaret, followed by an in-conversation with the artist.

Musical Mental Health Cabaret is a very personal theatre piece dealing with themes of depression anxiety and secrecy whilst using humour. Through a series of unpredictable acts of cabaret and variety, Priya Mistry depicts the bombarding symptoms that depression and anxiety evoke. It uses a sophisticated visual language and brutally honest monologue developed by the ‘all-singing-all-dancing-all-mental’ cast and crew. The performance attempts to make the invisible and unpredictable symptoms of anxiety and depression into something that can be quantified and shared.

The session will include an open discussion, exploring her own experiences of mental health, and considering how the arts and creative expression can make a positive contribution towards mental health.
