We know that human beings don’t do well in isolation – but there are those that don’t do well in crowds either.
A young woman’s experience of quarantine is framed and punctuated by depression… and ADHD…and dyslexia. Through this visual and auditory exploration of the effects of isolation coupled with the time-warping effect that ADHD has on the social ambivert, Metanoia, Monachopsis & Yugen looks at living through a pandemic with mental illness and neuro divergency. When are they seen as an extra weight and when are they a hidden asset? Like most things to do with human nature, we’re discovering that it’s a spectrum not a binary.
How does Metanoia cope with isolation, then reintegrating with her family again? The space has changed now, the story began in the cold snow and ends in the hot sunshine. Yes, it started off quiet and overwhelming and flowered into a soothing ruckus. The space has changed, but has it had a positive impact on Metanoia and the problems she associated with this place before? Can Metanoia find a silver lining in her darkest moments and follow it through to a brighter space?
She’ll first have to determine what a brighter space means to her.
