(de)construct is a physical exploration of the space between self-assurance and senselessness. How much can we understand and control how we construct our- selves and what happens when this understanding collapses? Shifting between honest disclosure and physical theatre, (de)construct seeks to find beauty and humour in the struggle to understand a fragmented self.
Drawing on personal experiences with mental illness, this is a piece interested in the stories we tell ourselves about who we are..
