Background


Supported by Bathway Theatre Network and University of Greenwich.


This performance contains upsetting subject matter with references to depression and suicide that some people may find upsetting.


Synopsis


A journey that starts right at the end.


A woman that is not used to having guests. A broken clock dressed in blood.


And suddenly there are only two minutes left; two minutes to make new friends, two minutes to retrace our steps, two minutes to play a game, two minutes to mend our hearts and say goodbye.


Ophelia Rewound is an interactive, autobiographical, solo performance which weaves intricate projection mapping, the story of Ophelia and Antigoni's lived experience through depression to examine the stereotypes that sit around women and mental health.


The character of Ophelia is a shape-shifting archetype, moving with the social attitudes of women throughout history.


This piece reflects this and offers a contemporary and unique perspective on an age-old story; reforming Ophelia the virgin, the seductress, the hysteric, the femme fatale, victim and manipulator…going beyond the myth to the person underneath.


The audience's journey begins at the end of Ophelia's; with her attempted suicide.


But through a series of intimate and thought-provoking interactions they are given the opportunity to become part of the narrative and share a moment of collective transformation.
