Depths Of My Mind

DOMM1
    A breathtaking show combining aerial skills, visual theatre, a pulsating soundtrack and stunning projections, Depths of My Mind brings to life the latest developments in neuroimaging around the teenage brain. 

    Suspended above the audience on moving transparent platforms the performers explore what is means to be changing and searching for somewhere to belong.

    Depths Of My Mind is the second work in Scarabeus Aerial Theatre's trilogy of work made for and in consultation with young people.

    "All of the performers have impressive technical abilities as aerialists, possessing strength and fluidity while utilising the silks, platforms, and the pole. Their performances are focused, owning emotion and vulnerability." - The Reviews Hub.

    "The piece did not shy away from anything and many issues were explored boldly yet with sensitivity, such as sexuality, aggression, violence at home, and much more." - North West End

    "The four talented performers ooze vitality and strength.  The dive-bombs on the Chinese Pole are nothing short of thrilling; while the mirroring and the simple placing of a foot or hand shows delicacy and contrast." - Plays To See

    "The bonus here is the immersive nature of the piece and the audience is encouraged to move around as each new piece develops, to sit on the floor or even lie under the platforms to watch the performers from a different perspective." - londontheatre1.com

    I can’t specifically put this in words – but as a teenager, I found it insanely emotional, seeing others express what I find so difficult. It made me feel empowered. I think everyone should see it. Young audience member
    It was good to see indoor work presented in that way with such a talented young company Jeremy Shine, Manchester International Arts
    It was a rare example of a show really suited the audience for which it was created without being patronising. Good shows for teenagers are very few and far between I think! Steve Cowton, The Lowry
