Date: Sunday 17th June 2018
Through the medium of dance our aim is to raise awareness of Mental Health in young people by bringing the subject to a safe, open and non-judgemental place where our young people can express themselves, create, discuss, observe, inspire and be inspired by others.
The project started with an audition for a Dance Company; ‘CORNISH ROOTS’ to find open-minded ambassadors who are passionate about making a change in their community who together with industry Celebrity; Lukas McFarlane and Big Dance Company director; Fiona Richardson spent an intensive week of training creating a showcase of thought provoking dance pieces tackling issues and delicate subject matter such as stress and anxiety, depression, psychosis, self harm and eating disorders.
The first Showcase was at The Acorn Theatre Penzance,15th April 2018 and had an overwhelming response and by popular demand we are re running it on 17th June 2018.
Lukas and Fiona are extremely passionate about the effects of mental health in young people, having worked in the industry for many years, mentoring vulnerable young adults.
They have dealt first hand with the effects of mental health & are passionate about building awareness around some of the triggers young people may be susceptible to and instilling confidence in talking openly about what is considered in some cases to be a taboo subject.
N.B. This event runs from 6pm – 7pm
The dance will be followed by a session of Q&A (from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m.)
