Film & Talk at Story Telling for Health Conference 2019

Join Vincent Dance Theatre at the Story Telling for Health conference at National Waterfront Museum, Swansea, to gain insight into the company’s innovative approach to socially engaged creative practice and watch some of the work on film.

VDT’s Art of Attachment celebrates the everyday resilience of women and children overcoming adversity and substance misuse, whose stories demand to be seen and heard. After watching the film, we will discuss the research process, the tension between creative risk and emotional wellbeing and the practical challenges of working with professional and non-professional collaborators.

Throughout 2018, choreographer/director Charlotte Vincent worked with women from Brighton Oasis Project to explore the complex emotional bonds that exist between women in recovery from substance misuse and their children, partners, family and friends.

In this hard-hitting, uplifting and insightful work, real-life testimonies combine with visual metaphor and movement to reveal the physical, emotional and psychological impact of drug and alcohol use on relationships and a feeling of belonging.

Made with the women of Brighton Oasis Project and supported by Wellcome Trust & Arts Council England.
