In 2015 our UCD Performance Project was: (___)Address Required. This project examined the themes of homelessness and mental health issues among young people today. The title comes from the difficulties many homeless people face in their day to day life-the vicious circle of needing to have a ‘home’ address in order to find work, apply for college or register for social services. Without an address they cannot get access the help they need-so how can they manage?
This performance was written and developed by the students themselves and takes the audience on a walk around the college grounds as they encounter seemingly spontaneous interactions with the students who tell their tales of hardship. Each rendezvous a thoroughly thought provoking piece and the viewer cannot help but be moved by the performance.
