Work in Progress Performance

Balancing Acts uncovers unique documentary perspectives on and experiences of depression and healing through sensorial and interdisciplinary means. Using first-hand interviews as a catalyst to create audio-visual and performative portraits, the work opens up and responds to intimate and honest reflections from individuals who cope with the condition.

This work-in-progress is underpinned by our ethnographic research into the topic, which aims to collect and creatively communicate real stories from those who have experienced depression – asking: what pressures does this generation face? How does one express depression? How does one find balance within a fragmented and fluctuating mental state?How does one create coping mechanisms with what is available?

Balancing Acts re-envisions this ethnographic material. Stories of struggle, resistance and hope are explored within a sensory staging space to stimulate new understandings and reflections on the subject.
