How To Be Well In A World That Is Sick? (Work in Progress)
Artistic director of Jackdaw theatre, Bethan Dear makes her debut at the Mach festival with a new version of her first ever solo show. A darkly comic and poignant exploration of women’s mental and emotional health.
Society. A patriarchal, image obsessed, capitalist, consumer machine. A global sickness. A worldwide epidemic.
Where do we run? Where can we hide? How do we get away when the over culture conditioning, has seeped into our very skin? What then? Mental illness? Emotional instability? Breakdown? Burnout? Madness?
How do we define well or unwell? And who is given the voice to decide which is which?
Join me for a journey from start to finish. From the end, back to the beginning, and back again.
Many. Times. Over.
