Dancing with Myself is the virtual reality retelling of a September evening filled with friends, food and seizures. Experienced from a first person perspective.
Jane has a neurological condition. She has seizures that inhibit control of her thoughts, words and actions. Jane’s form of epilepsy is complex and unpredictable, and makes her feel as though “an unruly beast” inhabits her body. Her life is regularly injected with surrealism, embarrassment and kindness.
Dancing with Myself dares you to let go of your preconceptions and step into Jane's shoes for only 20 minutes. It is her story, told through her eyes, and with her thoughts – faithfully recreated in an immersive, empathetic, and theatrical experience.
