Homotopia Festival 2018 presents
Rockbottom is a powerful, topical new dance theatre solo from Stuart Waters, a successful performer for 20 years making his debut as an independent artist.
Combining bold story-telling with highly physical choreography, Rockbottom is a moving and incredibly honest self-portrait of personal struggle with depression and addiction. Although Stuart’s subject matter is semi-autobiographical and fundamentally dark, his treatment is relatable. The themes are leavened with humour and warmth, skyrocketing between existential angst and irony, and give prominence to the roles of resilience and support networks within recovery.
Rockbottom is not only a thought-provoking night-out it is a reflective tool for everyone concerned with mental well-being. Importantly, safe-guarding is centre stage with this project, with discussion and signposting available in the Unity Bar post-show.
