A play about _TeEnage MeNtal Health

The production throws us to the life of a regular family stuck in that typical modern Labyrinth of sibling rivalry, parental stress and growing up under one roof that is slowly but surely caving in on you. We meet our protagonist in the middle of a mental health crisis. Sam is 15 and suffering from anxiety and panic attacks. He alternates between disconcerting exuberance and paralyzing apathy. And lately he’s being followed by a strange shadow, with horns. His own personal Minotaur has come to stay. His family, teachers and friends are at a loss;

Till the day he takes a leap of faith and decides to fly…

“Icarus – F**ked Up” shines a light on the stigma, fears and prejudices surrounding young people in emotional distress. With powerful images, we combine acting, puppetry and animation in an arresting and authentic production.
