WHAT’S ON OCTOBER: Shrimp Dance presented as part of Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival 2017
SHRIMP DANCE is a new performance dealing with mental health, consumer capitalism, and ecological crisis. It’s a collaboration with marine biologist Dr. Alex Ford, whose experiments have found anti-depressants entering the sea through human waste are affecting the behaviour of shrimp. High levels of prozac are causing shrimp to abandon their shadowy habitat and swim towards the light where they’re often eaten.
THE HUMANS ARE SO SAD THAT THE SHRIMP ARE GOING CRAZY.
The performance will be followed by a discussion with an invited panel about the links between mental health, community, and the environment.
This performance is presented as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival 2017.
Paul Michael Henry makes live performances rooted in Butoh Dance, music and poetry. His work has travelled around the UK and in Europe, America and Japan, and he is artistic director of UNFIX Festival (www.unfixfestival.com).
