UNTOLD weaves music, movement, and excerpts from over one hundred interviews to explore the mental health crisis in America, where the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate 46% of the population will struggle with mental illness at some point during their lifetime. This evocative meditation on hope and resiliency marks the San Diego debut of Blindspot Collective.
The creators of UNTOLD collected interviews with social workers and therapists; individuals struggling with addiction, eating disorders, and personality disorders; veterans battling PTSD; and survivors of suicide, all conducted and recorded by local students. Stories from those interviews lay the groundwork for a show that provocatively portrays these individuals’ bravery, vulnerability, and resiliency.
