Told in Confidence

“I am going to tell you a story that I never tell anyone. But it’s okay to tell you, because I don’t know who you are.”

An intimate performance for one or two people at a time, Told in Confidence is a gentle reflection on the taboos and stigma surrounding mental health. Through traditional storytelling and playful use of darkness and light, a space is created where secrets can be shared. Some things can only really be said to a stranger.
