Are you aware that 1 in 5 Australians aged 16-85 experience mental illness in any year? Did you know that suicide is the leading cause of death in 15-24 year olds?
Love Me; is an accessible performance designed to unpack the stigma surrounding mental illness and provoke conversation over how to promote mental wellbeing.
Love Me; is a multi-art form performance investigating the idea that anyone can struggle with mental illness. Using interactive sound design and projection, verbatim text, spoken word, slam poetry and music Love Me; unpacks the stigma surrounding mental illness. The performers, some of whom also have the lived experience of mental illness and social prejudice draw on this to bring a unique perspective to this project. It is this personal experience that our artists share with young people that has informed the content to create a show that is raw, funny, and vulnerable.
Presented by HOTA and indelabilityarts
