Mind Over Matter: The Musical tells the story of a teenager suffering huge amounts of grief with very little help or understanding. Throughout the story, this pattern continues for twenty years, through to manhood until one decision made out of desperation finally changes everything.
The musical incorporates spoken word poetry, Hip-Hop, singing and comedy to highlight various mental health issues, such as grief, addiciton, isolation and depression, the dangers of recieving no help, what we can do to help ourselves, the link between creativity and mental health and the importance of connection and community.
We are currently in the process of applying for funding for our first stage of development which will be an R&D process in November 2021 and we are also looking for ‘in kind’ for this R&D.
We will also be seeking both in-kind & financial investment/support for further stages of develpment.
If you would like to be involved or think you can help in any way please do get in touch with the Mind Over Matter team, we’d love to hear from you!
