"Why do we need an audience for our recovery? Well, if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" Eleanor is a loud, brazen and darkly comic theatre-maker, who has decided to take some terrible things that happened to her and turn them into a play. Sounds pretty intense, right? But it is funny, she promises. Sad-Vents is an immersive show about mental health, heartbreak and trauma through the lens of social media. Music, movement, and mixed media collide in this solo piece that bravely (or madly) asks the questions we don't want to hear the answers to. Somewhere between Euphoria, Instagram Live and all those Netflix trauma porn documentaries you just love watching; audiences will leave feeling exposed and alive, reconsidering what and why they share online, who it's really for and how they consume the lives of others. Together we'll scroll through reels to find what's real and when it's done, we'll go ready to share our deepest, darkest secrets with all and sundry. Or not...?
