Uncomfortably Numb: Performing Mental
A presentation by Irish theatre-maker, actor
and musician Dylan Tighe about his theatre project RECORD which
uses as its starting point his personal history of mental health
diagnosis and treatment. The presentation will discuss the origins,
motivations and composition of the project and explore ways in
which a theatre project can contribute to the re-conceptualisation
of mental health.
RECORD involves the release of Dylan’s debut
album, an alternative opera based on the songs from the album which
draws on Dylan's psychiatric records, autobiography, fiction and
16mm film, and a series of discursive events.
Dylan Tighe is a theatre-maker, actor, writer
and musician from Dublin. Recent work includes 'The Trailer of
Bridget Dinnigan’ a new version of Lorca’s 'The House of Bernarda
Alba' featuring 11 Irish Traveller women, and 'No Worst There
