An exploration of chaos and calm

An interactive exploration of chaos and calm. Supported by Boundless Theatre.


I was awarded the Boundless Accelerator Bursary in May 2019. Carnival is being developed over 2019 - 2022. 


Set on a fictional island surrounded by a body of water, Carnival is an interactive installation that will creatively explore how mental health and emotional wellbeing, specifically anxiety, affects the lives of teenagers and young adults with complex needs, through spoken word, sound looping and colourful multi-sensory experiences.


In 2021, I will be collaboratively working with teenagers and young adults, and their families directly from their homes to develop this project; with plans in summer 2021 to work in collaboration with young adults aged 19 - 25 with complex needs, and the life skills centre they attend.


The installation aims to not only be an exploration of anxiety and mental wellbeing, but also a vibrant celebration of our lives and our differences.
