In Spring 2020, Chapter’s feature exhibition From This World, To That Which Is To Come, by Mel Brimfield, with its focus on psychosis and its treatment, inspires a season of performances and films that link mental health and creativity.
Films in March that explore this motif include the hallucinatory sci-fi teaser Annihilation starring Natalie Portman, an exclusive Welsh preview (plus Q&A) of the documentary Home following adventurer Sarah Outen’s traumatic round-theworld journey by bike, kayak and boat and System Crasher – a Wild and troubled nine year-old Benni keeps getting expelled from one foster home after another due to her uncontrollable aggression.
Elsewhere in the programme, theatre practitioner Gilly Adams explores her alter-ego Mrs Blister as she recounts a forty-day trek across northern Spain.
There’ll be opportunities to get involved and learn something new too - look out for Wellness Workshops coming soon...
