By Blank Canvas & Jabuti Theatre
Produced by Vision Mechanics
“A dance-mindscape featuring aerial and physical theatre which is supported by stunning visual projections and haunting music”
Two female performers tell the story of a young woman called Amy. After being overseas for years, she returns home to Scotland to find a new place to settle. With the unexpected rejection from her mum Amy is tested, pushed and thrown into her own mental turmoil.
‘In Her Shadows’ is a visual performance that explores a young woman’s relationship with the complexity of her depression whilst challenging the stigmas that surround it.
‘In Her Shadows’ is a new collaboration between A Blank Canvas and Jabuti Theatre, with award winning director Cora Bissett. As part of the autumn 2015 tour, In Her Shadows will be prominently featured in the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival and Aberdeen Dance Live
