Festival of Minds and Bodies: Alaska

30 Nov Sat, 16:00 - 17:10 - 1 Dec Sun, 16:00 - 17:10

Take a seat at the table with Cheryl Martin for this intimate conversation about how she survived depression, asylums – even being black at Cambridge in the 1980s – and found a way to thrive. This performance follows Chery’s emotional journey and features fantastical images, singing and dancing.

This show mentions suicide and self-harm.
