Prices from £5.00 to £10.00
One Woman is a hypnotic dreamscape.
Through binaural sound the audience is drawn into the mind of a woman who grew up with severe depression and BPD (borderline personality disorder) as she tries to find the answer to who she was, how she came to be that person, who she might have been, and who she is now.
The audience is taken right to the heart of the most difficult memories, but in an allusive rather than hit-you-on-the-head-with-it kind of way. A way that ultimately transcends the past and points the way to a different future. A future where the memories lose their grip, and with that loss, the power of the abuser fades.
The binaural sound will wrap around each audience member in an individual, protective cocoon. It allows the audience to interact with the material on their own terms.
Artistically organic text is is built into the film for accessibility.
Cheryl will accompany her performances with an introductory talk and a Q and A session.
Content Warning One Woman, which deals with some of the reasons why Cheryl grew up with severe depression, is recommended for viewers aged 14+. Trigger warnings for mentions of: suicide, sexual and emotional abuse
