TURN ON FEST: MINA by Nataly Lebouleux

An experimental reworking of Paper Thin, Nataly Lebouleux’s award-winning animated film, this piece uses an innovative cross-art language and style to explore the controversial issue of conversion therapy and gay exorcisms, practices still used across the world today.

Combining film, animation, physicality and sound this enigmatic piece is fluid, layered and open to interpretations.

There will be post-show discussions for audience members on the 16th and 17th of January with the production’s creative team which focus on the devising process and themes which inspired the creation of Mina.

Do not miss our panel of invited speakers: Jayne Ozanne, Stephen Parsons and Robert Eloff. They will join the Q&A to discuss  the issue of Gay cures and Conversation therapy within the Church of England.  For more information: Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/improbabledolls

This production is accessible to D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences though creative captioning integrated into the fabric of the piece throughout.
