The nights we survive

“Borderline Personality Disorder. I had never heard of it but the doctor handed me a checklist and it felt like I was reading myself on a page.”

Evelyn is brave, funny, sad, vulnerable, colourful and utterly relatable. This tour-de-force solo performance is their deeply personal and lyrical exploration of growing up and living with mental illness. From struggling to make it to the next check-in text, to believing in tomorrow. Experience a life told as a story, chaotic and unfinished, filled with poetry, puppets and plenty of dance breaks.

Accompanied by heartfelt live music from folk singer-songwriter Be Gosper, witness stories from the backyard, memories in the kitchen, hugs on the front porch and dancing in the driveway. Borderline is an ode to the nights we survive.
