A successful performer for 20 years Stuart Waters is making his debut as an independent artist witha powerful and topical solo of dance theatre.
Rockbottom is a moving self-portait of personal struggle with depression and addiction. Combining bold story-telling with highly physical choreography and humour, Waters skyrockets between existential angst and irony to develop his theme, exploring with heart-warming honesty the lonely road to addiction and the roles of resilience and support in recovery. The result is a thought-provoking night-out and a reflective tool for everyone concerned with mental well-being. Safe-guarding is set centre stage, with a question-and-answer session and signposting available post-show. Rockbottom is touring from spring 2019.
