Description

B.L.I.P.S. is a wild ride of real-life circus psychosis, acrobatic madness, hula-hoop hope and radical resilience. Have you ever had insomnia? Thought you were telepathic? Or believed you were Jesus incarnate? Margot Mansfield has, and this is her story. At 19, she began experiencing Brief Limited Intermittent Psychotic Symptoms. B.L.I.P.S. is a touching retelling about the chaos of psychosis, told through beautiful imagery, physical feats, lip-sync, home videos and circus virtuosity. A peek through the beautiful lens of batshit crazy. Performed and co-written by award-winning Margot Mansfield. Directed and co-written by acclaimed, multi-award winning, circus luminary Jess Love.
