Milk Crate Theatre and Metro Screen partnered to create a short video for the international Day for Persons with disability. The premise of the video was to create and film a social experiment wherein, four ensemble artists worked with a costume designer to make 3D, outward representations of what it feels like to live with a mental illness. I was asked to volunteer as the model who wore their creations around Martin Place in peak hour traffic to see how the general public would respond.
