Mental health issues are explored in live gig - theatre show, Electrolyte
Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from Monday 13 to Sunday 19 May, is a time to show support for better mental health in all.
In recognition, Theatre Royal Winchester is looking ahead to Electrolyte – which heads to the theatre on Monday 24 June. Electrolyte is brought to the stage by award-winning theatre company, W I L D C A R D – whose aim is to produce stories that promote positive social change. Last year Electrolyte won the Mental Health Fringe Award, which, presented by the Mental Health Foundation, recognises the most compelling show about mental health at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Set in Leeds, Electrolyte follows party-lover, Jessie, who sick of her city and its people, is blinded by an ambitious singer-songwriter, Allie.
What’s it all About?
Live electronic dance music and spoken word poetry combine in this fast-paced piece of gig theatre that explores the topics of friendship, loss and mental health.It has no set apart from the musical instruments, played by the six performers on-stage, andyet still seamlessly transports the audience from the nightclub to the city streets.
Electrolyte will be at Theatre Royal Winchester on Monday 24 June at 7.30pm. There will be a post-show discussion on mental health following the performance. Find out more, or book tickets, by visiting www.theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk, or call the Box Office on 01962 840440.
