How do you distract yourself from negative thoughts? Herbal tea, meditation, booze, bubble baths?
Louisa shares her musings away from the therapist’s chair. Watch as she tries to cope, to care and not to disappear.
Louisa Robbin is a live artist and writer. A sad girl who projects her feelings on to glitter and gold and a queer black British (African) woman who is forever ticking boxes.
Passionate about the alternative, the untraditional and the awkward; Louisa is intent on making art that explores the beauty in ritual, intimacy and the self (self-care, self-harm, self-esteem). Her recent body of work ‘to care’ explores her depression and the desperate need to keep going, keep doing and be more. As half of Transits – a pair of songwriters, musicians and vocalists, Louisa allows her writing to inform their unique style. Drawing influence from artists such as Daughter and Bonobo, their haunting sound has been said to transport an audience.
Recent involvements with arts organisations include Fierce Festival, mac Birmingham, MAIA Creatives, Unfinished Business Theatre, The Rep, Talawa Theatre Company, Birmingham Pride, SHOUT Festival and Contemporary Other.
