SOPHIE WILLAN (UK)
Bolton born Sophie Willan grew up in and out of the Care System. At 23, the State unexpectedly handed over all her personal records.
In this deeply personal show, Sophie explores who she is today through the eyes of the numerous experts that assessed her throughout her unconventional childhood and then adolescence. In this bold show, Sophie guides us through the genuine records that reveal key incidents in her life.
Post-show discussion with poet and performance-maker Fergus Evans followed the performance, reflecting on the impact of Sophie’s childhood experiences.
