Father Figure at the SJT

Father Figure at the SJT

Details

Father Figurine is Body Politic’s first full-length piece. First performed as part of Resolution at The Place in January 2018 and later at MOTUS Festival in June 2018.

With the current climate of mental health discussion, Father Figurine talks about the fragilities and vulnerabilities in men and young boys. Figures show young people are affected disproportionately with over half of mental health problems, starting by the age of 14 and 75% by 18.

This piece combines poignant spoken word poetry with hip hop dance, to explore the fractured relationship between a father and his son and their inability to healthily deal with a traumatic event.

Will they be able to share their emotions with each other? Or will they fall into the statistic of nearly half of men believing they can’t express their feelings?

'Our work isn’t just about raising awareness. It’s a fight to keep mental healthcare at the tip of our tongues and affect real change. Continuous change.'

Age guidance: 14+


'Physical struggle dissolved into a closing moment of hope'
Siobhan Murphy/Critic, The Place

'It deals with themes and ideas not often brought centre stage and explores the vulnerability of men today through a complex movement language combining dance theatre and hip-hop.'
Dana Naomy Mills/ Journalist, Morning Star

'completely captivated from start to finish'
Emily Winfield/ Producer, Studio Wayne McGregor
