Declaration Spring/Summer Tour 2017
Art with Heart (with the backing of several organisations including the ADHD Foundation, The Granada Foundation, Essex County Council, Arts Council England–the full list is available via the link at the end of this post) presents Declaration, a curious, colourful and candid exploration of ADHD, mental health and diagnosis.
Declaration is a play that examines the faces we wear to fit in and what happens when we are forced to declare our differences. Developed in consultation with medical professionals, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) and mental health support groups, Declaration challenges stereotypes with a curious, comic and candid look at ADHD, mental health and diagnosis in the 21st century.
Instinctive, curious, bold and bouncy, Sarah is a mighty proud square peg which wouldn’t be such a problem if the hole wasn’t so damn round. Her childhood Doctor thought it was sugar. Her current Doctor thinks its ADHD. Sarah still feels different, so what will a label do? Will it change the way you see her and the way she sees herself?
With autobiographical storytelling, comedy, and conversations with audiences, Declaration takes you on a vibrant and daring adventure that asks you to roll around in your weirdness, make a hat out of it and dance.
Declaration is currently on a Spring/Summer Tour and a list of the tour dates and venues with booking information as well as a trailer for Declaration is available from the Art with Heart e-flyer.
