By Demi Nandhra. A Contact Flying Solo commission 2017

Demi takes anti-depressants and her Mummy-Jee drinks holy water. Both laugh at the other’s choice, but after 20 years of laughing Demi has started to wonder what will happen if she takes a leap of faith? What happens when we suspend our disbelief?

Oil and Water is a performance about women, mental illness and religion; the beauty and absurdity of faith in the face of an illness.

Commissioned by Contact for Flying Solo Festival 2017 – Contact’s annual festival celebrating radical solo performance.
