About A Clown Show About Rain

Silent Faces tackle complex issues through physical comedy, finding that the best way to talk about the ‘hard stuff’ is to start by making people laugh. In this new work-in-progress, they smash together clowning with beautiful visual imagery and physical theatre, viewing mental health through a new lens. Questioning why we find it hard to appreciate the struggle faced by those suffering from depression, and exploring how destroying the stigma around mental health could help, A Clown Show About Rain explains why being asked to ‘cheer up’ is sometimes a ridiculous request.
