Performance diaries: Trauma.
I was proud to perform at The Oval today in partnership with Lambeth Made to raise awareness of trauma and adverse experiences.
My piece was based on domestic violence - an issue that is rising with importance and needs to be recognised and reviewed. I was stricken by the amount of professionals in Lambeth who are actively seeking to combat issues young people go through daily behind the scenes, and it's a pleasure to be surrounded by those passionate to make a change.
Performing it through the POV of a survivor is what an audience need to empathise, because through empathy and compassion we create change. Let's carry on leaving footsteps we can look back at in time to come.
