Rockbottom is a powerful, topical new dance theatre solo from Stuart Waters. Combining bold story-telling with highly physical choreography, Rockbottom is a deeply moving portrait of one man’s journey through depression and addiction.
While the subject matter of Rockbottom is semi-autobiographical, the piece is accessible and is designed to alternately move, challenge, and illuminate the audience. The themes of depression, anxiety, and social withdrawal are leavened with unexpected humour and warmth; the mood of the piece skyrockets between existential angst and irony while prominence is given to the roles of resilience and support networks along the road to recovery.
Stuart Waters’ critically acclaimed physical theatre identity, honed over many years of performance with high profile contemporary dance companies is centre-stage in this riveting exploration of one man’s personal struggle to find the light. Rockbottom marks his debut as a solo writer/performer.
NOTE Rockbottom is not only a thought-provoking night-out it is a reflective tool for everyone concerned with mental well-being.
Importantly, safe-guarding is centre stage with this project, with discussion and signposting available in the bar post-show.
