It is estimated that one in six people experience a mental health problem in any given week.

With that information at our disposal, it's a wonder that there's still such a stigma around discussing mental health openly. To combat this, we bring you MIND FULL SEASON. Across our 3 venues located in Broadgate, Camberwell & Sheffield come see a collection of shows, exhibitions, discussions, film screenings and more, all on the theme of mental health. 

Read on to discover highlights from each venue & check out our Events Page to view the full Autumn programme.

Mind Full is supported by Arts Council England.


Sheffield

Communicate by Sheepish Productions
3rd Oct-4th Oct

James is suffocated by his past. Based on true events, this is one couple’s journey through bereavement, love, pregnancy, superheroes and enforced pen maintenance. It’s a story about the importance of talking, opening up and grieving at the right time and about not letting your past determine your future. This intimate and gripping account of life and death has been developed in association with Cruse Bereavement Care.

Tensile Strength by Holly Gallagher
9th Oct

Tensile Strength (or How to Survive at Your Wit's End) is a performance about Stress. And figuring out why so many of us feel it to an unhealthy degree. It's about fear, pressure, uncertainty. It's about sadness and mental health and how we help ourselves. It's about feeling like things are all A Bit Too Much and then the cat goes missing.

This is a show about the world we live in now, and will prove essential viewing in a society that just can't seem to relax anymore.

Work in Progress by Jess Gibson
10th Oct

How do you Feel? What do you think? Sometimes, everyday questions turn into existential crises for Jess as she struggles to manage her mental health – Borderline Personality Disorder, Anxiety and Depression. However, through humour and a passion for dance, Jess begins to learn how to feel comfortable with feeling uncomfortable.

Be a Man Exhibition by Theatre Deli and Dark Yellow Dot
14th October - 4th November

Suicide is the number one killer of men under 45 in the UK. There’s a stigma around seeking help as it’s viewed as a sign of weakness and loss of masculinity. We’re teaming up with Dark Yellow Dot and a number of local artists to use visual art as a medium to talk about male mental health and what it really means to be a man.

Floods by Urban Foxes & Thomas Voce-Siriani

In their new work, the all-female collective, Urban Foxes, explore fear and the future in an irreverent and stylistically inventive piece. Funny and imaginative, Floods is about what will be left, if anything, for the next generations. Featuring an appearance from Mother Nature and a Michael Jackson tribute!
