The Fog Inside
by Cohen New Works Festival, University of Texas
Apr. 13 - Apr. 16, 2015
Each fall, thousands of bright, ambitious students relocate to Austin to start their college career, and this transition affects everyone differently. Students need tools to navigate through failure, rejection, isolation, sleep deprivation, stress, anxiety and depression.According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one out of four people are affected by mental health, and usually by the age of 24.This project was born out of research around the perceptions of mental health on The University of Texas at Austin campus. Specific to University of Texas at Austin’s undergraduate population, The Fog Inside is a devised, interactive Theatre For Dialogue performance engaging audience members in conversations surrounding the topic of mental health.
