We’ve been waiting…

Caught in the same storm.

It’s been a long time…


…making this performance, alone and together, digitally and in person. I’ve been waiting… is an original musical performance and composed and created by Many Minds members and vocal composers Verity Standen and Jack Drewry, directed by Viki Browne.

Using movement, singing and bubble machines Many Minds will take you on a 30 minute journey through sound and song inspired by our connection with nature and her offerings to us during the pandemic. From the grounding in our walks, the air in and out of our lungs as we danced  and the chorus of birds that met us each morning.

…and while we lost your touch, we had hers.   
She filled our cup, so something could grow.   
  
And it did…

Come with us to explore themes of isolation and the power of nature to offer to comfort and connect us in this playful, uplifting and moving performance.


The performance will be followed by a 15-minute Q&A with members of the cast.

Many Minds is a performance and mental health charity; Our members performing, staff and volunteers identify with experiences of mental ill-health. We use performance and devising workshops to improve confidence, reduce stigma of mental health, build self-esteem and social skills.

Here’s what our members think an audience can expect from the piece:

“Its a walk through months of confusion, loss, discovery, lost it again….. Ah there they are” 

“You can expect… Powerful music, beautiful sounds, beautiful people. Long periods of frustration then….. ENERGY!”

You can expect a graceful box girder bridge”
