Heirs to Bedlam
HEIRS TO BEDLAM is a multidisciplinary performance group consisting of four members: Kristina Andersson Bicher, Tasha Dougé, Sarah Olson and Sierra Ortega. Creating dynamic encounters and interventions within various public settings. #DONTDISCARDME is a collaborative performance series that demands the audience to confront their own prejudices about the status of the neurodiverse, or the “mentally ill”. HEIRS TO BEDLAM was created during part of Wafaa Bilal’s Dynamic Encounters Workshop at MoMA in April of 2016. Each member of the HEIRS TO BEDLAM group has been personally affected across the spectrum of these issues in various ways. Our aim is to create interventions that will energize awareness around mental wellness.
