I worked with Film By Numbers to create animation and video projection sequences for Vanessa Coffey and Joshua Payne’s new theatre piece MIRROR MIRROR. Mirror Mirror examines the thoughts and feelings of those suffering from mental health issues and associated eating disorders. The script has been developed from interviews with young people in Scotland who are fighting with eating disorders themselves. Our visuals were projected onto the performers themselves, mirrors and helium inflated balloons that represented the character’s thoughts and fears.The play enjoyed great success as part of the Mental Health Festival at Glasgow’s Tramway theatre. The show will continue to spread the word about these important issues with performances in schools around Scotland.
