Never Better is a specially commissioned walkabout performance with music, song, theatre, dance and art inspired by the history of Gloucesterhire’s mental health. Over the last year a team of researchers and artists have worked with Gloucestershire archives who hold one of the largest collections of medical records from *lunatic asylums in the country. This hauntingly beautiful and uplifting performance weaves historic and current mental health stories in an accessible and moving way.
*Terminology taken from Gloucestershire Archives from the original medical records
‘I AM NOT WHO I AM WHEN I AM IN CRISIS -
And in crisis I may not always know I am unwell”
