In her second commission from Dance City, Alice will be exploring a physicalization of what it is like living with the mental illness Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. For those suffering with OCD the mental illness can be restricting, debilitating, exhausting and frustrating. OCD also has a huge impact upon those who live with someone who suffers with OCD, which is something Alice wants to choreographically acknowledge.  The piece will look particularly at the inner monologue, rituals, actions and routines of somebody who suffers with OCD, with specific reference to the different types of OCD such as “contamination”, “invasive thoughts”, “checking” and “hoarding”.
