TLC : The Loneliness Connection – Watch the Show!

About TLC: The Loneliness Connection

With collaborating artists Vicki Lawrence, Marissa Treichel, Rohini Drury, Ruth Walker, Danielle Linegar and Justine Grantham.

The Cassettes have always been about creativity and connection.  Through the TLC project funded by Create NSW, artists and teachers from The Cassettes are thrilled to be exploring loneliness, connection and the space in between with our local community, through a new collaboratively devised show directed by Vicki Lawrence.

Why loneliness?

Shortly before Covid struck in 2019, loneliness was identified as “the great health crisis of our time“.

It’s not just old folks, or those in isolation.  One can be surrounded by people, and feel profoundly alone.  In a 2018 Monash University report, young people age 18-25 years were found to suffer the most from loneliness.

The UK and Japan have a Minister for Loneliness.  It contributes to depression, anxiety, cognitive decline, high blood pressure, insomnia, bad eating habits and substance misuse.

Loneliness touches us all – yet we rarely talk about it.

Join us in shining a twinkly light on the shared experience of loneliness, through:

A recent study found hunger and loneliness have the same neural pathways.  The need to connect is as primal as the need to eat.
