A depressed stoic father. An independent anxious son. Can they heal their relationship after a traumatic family ordeal?
Statistics show that young people are affected disproportionately with over half of mental health problems, starting by the age of 14, and raising to 75% by age 18. Nearly half of men believe they can't express their feelings.
Father Figurine talks about the fragilities and vulnerabilities in men and young boys by combining poignant spoken word poetry with hip hop dance. It explores the fractured relationship between a father and his son, and their inability to healthily deal with a traumatic event.
