5 Stars "Humorous... heartbreaking... conveying the manic highs and lows through expert physicality" Upside Adelaide

A peek through the beautiful lens of bat s**t crazy.

Have you ever had insomnia? Thought you could fly? Believed you were Jesus incarnate?

Margot Mansfield has and this is her story. At age 19 she began experiencing Brief Limited Intermittent Psychotic Symptoms. A touching retelling of a family's struggle through the chaos of psychosis and how they hung onto hope while untangling the mysteries of mental health. Told through beautiful imagery and physical feats, leaning on a variety of forms such as; lip-sync, dance, home videos, theatre, circus virtuosity and clowning.

Co-written and directed by multi-award-winning circus luminary and theatre maker, Jess Love, this highly acclaimed new work will revolutionise the way you see 'insanity' forever.

“Humour is skilfully woven throughout… Incredibly engaging…Overall, B.L.I.P.S. is a moving and insightful exploration of mental health that leaves a lasting impression.” Mindshare

“B.L.I.P.S. is funnier than you’d imagine a show about adolescent psychosis might be. She has done a remarkable job of translating her experiences into an engaging, one-of-a-kind physical theatre experience.” InDaily
