How the Light Gets In uses contemporary dance to explore the physical and emotional sensations associated with depression.
A young girl meets with her friends in the park, all smiles and laughter - and suddenly we are plunged into her inner world: and her struggle against the weight, enclosure, and formlessness of depression.
How the Light Gets In is the 6th episode of Then Dance; a series of short narrative dance films funded by Arts Council England and Sky Arts.
