She Ain’t Heavy/Blink
She Ain’t Heavy, She’s My Mother
A new autobiographical show about a young man and his relationship with his mother’s Anorexia, performed solely by the author. The piece comprises of a recount of events through his eyes, explorations of the effects of his relationship with Anorexia, and his honest address of the question of what Anorexia is?
She Ain’t Heavy is an account of one specific experience, one specific eating disorder, and one young man who grew up in its shadow.
Written and performed by Simon Dean.
The brain. The control centre of everything the human body can do.
To breathe, blink, communicate; everything relies on the connection between the mind and the body.
What happens when this mind/body connection is flawed, broken, stopped? What happens when the mind wants to communicate, but the body cannot?
This dance theatre piece explores the complex mind/body connection, and lightly touches on the experiences of those involved with brain injuries. Do we sometimes take our working minds and bodies for granted?
