SICK! Festival 2019

LET’S TALK ABOUT IT… 18 SEPTEMBER – 5 OCTOBER 2019

“We like to think that we’re beyond taboos, that nothing is off bounds any more. But, when it comes to the health of our bodies and minds and the universal, inescapable experience of death, we’re still pretty tight-lipped. In attempting to break the silence and confront the unspoken – often with humour and imagination – SICK! Festival has a vital role to play.”
