New Move Network Presents:

Event: Makeshift Dance Collective: Absence of Light [Showing]

Book Online

In this showing Makeshift Dance Collective presents the culmination of their research into mental illness. This project is a response to lives lived and lives lost to depression and anxiety. Both these illnesses are household names and yet there is still a very real stigma and shame that keeps them in the dark. 

Absence of Light is not a depiction of any one experience. Rather, through dance, object play and metaphor the performance seeks to open up a dialogue, ask questions and break down fear.


A Q&A with Makeshift Dance Collective will follow the showing
