Can one pill really change everything? How does it feel to slowly lose your mind?
Over 3.5 million women, trans and non-binary people are on the contraceptive pill in the UK, yet this topic is something which is rarely talked about or presented onstage. Dosage aims to challenge the silence surrounding the side-effects of the contraceptive pill by presenting a platform to showcase and discuss experiences.
Using live sound design, live film, spoken word, the performance explores what living in an alternate reality with mental health feels like, how to keep calm and carry on and what ‘survival’, ‘recovery’ and ‘hope’ really look like for someone once they’ve been through trauma.
