Black holes and Butterflies

Let's talk about young people's mental health.

With mental health problems affecting 1 in 10 children, in partnership with Ludus Dance, we have developed a performance and education package to provoke discussion around young people's mental health.

Using dance theatre, spoken word and digital technology, we will bust the lid on mental health to support mental wellness in young people aged 11+, whilst also encouraging greater discourse on the subject between teachers, parents and carers.

HandsON: Black holes and Butterflies can be bought into schools as a half or full day experience for either 30 or 60 young people. Participants engaging with the work will;

  • See a 25 minute performance duet whilst wearing wireless headsets
  • Partake in a 15-30 minute post show discussion, bringing to light some of the themes of the show
  • Participate in a 1.5-3hr creative dance theatre workshop to practically explore the themes and share exercises and regimes to reduce personal stress and anxiety
