Next dates: 17th - 21st, 24th + 25th FEB 2020
STIGMA MH -1
This work is about male mental health in particular around the subject of Masculinity, and the spectrum of what that is/and/or could be. This work has been developed both at LSC's "Moving Words," and a small RND we did in July 2019. Which has help developed the concept with us talking about male mental health in marginalised groups like the LGBTQ, and also people you surround yourself with/the company we keep.
Next steps: Is to bring together these two versions of this work in a full week of RnD process to create a full body of work, so that we feel like we are doing the concept justice. We are even looking at formatting it as an installation piece potentially, as well as for the stage.
