Inside a shipping container is something intimate and intricate. Unkindest Cut, by Sadhana Dance, interweaves dance, performance, text and film around an intricate light installation exploring some of the complex issues around young people and mental health.
It integrates their voices and stories to create a world that is emotionally rich, dark, captivating and sensitive. Unkindest Cut is a collaboration with audiovisual artists Kathy Hinde and Matthew Olden and lighting designer Aideen Malone, developed in association with Consultant Adolescent Psychiatrist, Dr Partha Banerjea and the South London and Maudsley Adolescent Mental Health Services.
In addition to public performances, there will be workshops with local young people, exploring the themes of the work.
Performances are FREE and each lasts for 30 minutes at Battle Recreation Ground:
Sat 27th Oct: 12.45pm & 5pm
Sun 28th Oct: 11am & 4.45pm
