With eye-opening statistics presented before you as the show begins, you immediately sit up straighter in your chair with your attention to the stage. Erasing the Stigma presented by Art for Awareness takes a real look at mental illness showcased through dance and artistry choreographed by Rachel Bemrose.
One in five Canadians will experience some form of mental illness in their lives and this production brings to light the journey, struggles and survival of those that suffer with mental illness.
This week is also Mental Illness Awareness Week. Look for other events being held throughout the week for this important cause.
The show continues October 8th and 9th at 8 p.m. in the Adam Scott Auditorium. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door.
