the SLEEP project.
Last month I became one of the awardees of Ignite 2021. This fund will help me in the making my passion project, The Sleep Project, come to light. This is a project bringing science and theatre together, specifically looking at the new science of sleep and sleep disorders such as sleep talking and insomnia. I am incorporating movement and musical sequences as well as a series of 'moments' to shed light on a subject that we don't actually know an awful lot about and how it affects us all.
This project was born out of my own personal interest in neuroscience and the conversations that arose with friends and family about how they've noticed a change in their sleep during the pandemic. I would like to clarify that this is NOT a pandemic piece.
More updates will be posted here as I move along with the project so keep a look out!
