An immersive solo journey about mental illness.
Award-winning artists the indirect Object present three intimate stories of intergenerational mental illness. Exploring the heart of life with clinical depression, Verbatim asks ‘at what point is a person with mental illness responsible for their actions?’
Exposing, and uncompromising, Verbatim will break your heart with a deeply personal, yet universal, everyday experience of living with mental health.
WHEN: Thursday 22 – Saturday 24 March, 6pm – 8.30pm (20 minute durations)
CONTENT: Mature themes, strong language, confined spaces and haze effects.
