It would be great to know all of the risks before we make a decision, wouldn’t it? Especially about what we put into our bodies. Theatre maker gobscure presents heartfelt at Live Theatre on Wednesday 19th October, a show developed after a side effect heart attack from prescribed medication, and a psychiatrist’s flippant response of “whoops, yes, I wondered when that was going to happen, I suppose we should have warned you..”.

heartfelt urges audiences to consider what we could learn from everything around us, particularly other creatures, to reframe, relearn and develop new perspectives on the world and our places in it. gobscure uses tragic and deeply personal experiences to create a show that is as educational as it is engaging.

This hour-long production is a low-tech performance with some hard hitting commentary and an undertone of bleak yet poetic humour which has been used as a coping mechanism. This show refuses to shy away from the complex, political and humane, which breaks down the aftermath of ‘side effects’ and explores the things that we could learn from the all emotional and hyper intelligent octopi.
