Everyone has heard of it, but not many want to speak out

Depression. That heavy dreaded word we have all heard of but fail to understand. What exactly is depression? What does it look like? How does it start and does it ever end? What causes it? Does it hurt? Is there a miracle cure for it? So many questions surrounding one single word...

Explore some of the answers to these questions at Joyous Depression. Nores Cerfeda shares this autobiographical performance of how he came to realise he was depressed, the feelings he experiences and how his life changed through this realisation.

Cerfeda tears down the walls of taboo encompassing this subject; by sharing the funny side, the crushing feelings, the deep endless helplessness, the ridiculous opinions, the physical and mental struggle to perform even the simplest of tasks and all the absurdity this mental illness/condition brings upon its host, he exposes the ease of how depression fiercely abducts the entire well being of even the strongest individuals.

Depression, unlike many other illnesses, does not discriminate on age, religion, gender, cultural background, socioeconomic status or education level. It is, therefore, a priority in our society to open the conversation and close all judgement, so we can begin to listen and understand.

Joyous Depression is a one-man show providing a personal insightful story that will have you wondering, questioning and in some cases relating yourself or others close to you to the difficulty of this issue. Give the show a go this 2019 Fringe Festival season if you are after a thought provoking, raw, honest performance.

Joyous Depression is showing one more night (Saturday 16th of March at 8pm) at Cafe Outside the Square. Click here to book your tickets.
