Butterfly Man

Butterfly Man (work in progress)

Caroline Hunt, Nick Hunt and Dan Jones

As a child, Ben fell in love with butterflies. But when the wood behind his home was felled, the butterflies disappeared — with profound implications for his mental health. Psychiatric treatment helps him ‘cope’ with his severe depression, but should we really be medicating the ones who cry when a butterfly dies? This is the story of his journey from depression to recovery — a multi-layered scratch performance using sound and projection to weave an intimate portrait of loss and hope in the age of the Sixth Extinction.

Created by the company.

There will be a short feedback session after the show.
