Hi friends,My dance film giving voice to postpartum depression went live as part of the ''In Their Own Voice" online festival this weekend.
Here's what people are saying about “Barely A Person”:
“ It had me in tears”
“ A very powerful piece... it’s still giving me goosebumps”
"It was beautiful & powerful"
"what you bit off is big, but well chewed in the short piece you crafted: the soundscape enhanced the visual unfolding, the dance and camerawork were thoughtfully paired, the script was well-honed, and shone light on a difficult shadow-side of giving birth that is too often treated as an anomaly, personal shortcoming, or shame-laden secret"
We had a talkback on Saturday after the first performance, you can watch it on the Cloverdale Performing Arts Center YouTube page here! (Starts around 3 minutes in)
If you'd like to see it, and support local art, there are 4 more chances to see Barely A Person next weekend May 14 / 15 / 16 alongside some other female-written and performed works; tickets are available here.
