YMI Dancing

Inspired by the novel by Susanna Kaysen, this piece explores the issue of mental health within society, predominately amongst young women. Within the piece, the dancers express what it feels like to be affected and overcome by emotion, as well as the importance of supporting others who are undergoing the same internal struggles. The piece begins very orderly and structured, as it builds so does a sense of chaos and anxiety. This sense of lose of control shadows the feeling of hopelessness that people with mental health experience.
