Pete Edwards plans to develop a new piece of work exploring the sensitive issues and themes of rape and sexual abuse, and the depression and psychological impact on a person’s mental health. Evolving from source materials including found poems, writings, pop songs, images and other popular culture references, support from Unlimited will enable Edwards to work with a group of artists to develop performance fragments which reflect and respond to this complex issue.
