Under the Light
I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder when I was 19 years old, and I experienced a manic episode at this time. It was a terribly illuminating experience, and this piece tries to convey the fear and excitement of losing one’s mind. It tries to really penetrate the subconscious of the audience, while remaining highly digestible and relatable material.
