'When I Was a Fig in the Cabaret…' | Toxic Positivity & Dancing Through Life with Belle Bluestocking Invisible Cabaret

Today we’re joined by dancer and troupe sister Belle Bluestocking to talk about mental health and creativity, and what the two mean to her (kind of our theme, in case you hadn’t noticed). Belle opens up about dancing through her emotions, her beloved Sylvia Plath, and why ‘toxic positivity’ can be damaging to our mental health. Plus, did you know you can have a panic attack from happy excitement? Neither did we. Listen to the end to find out more… You can find Belle Bluestocking on Instagram as @issybee22.

  1. Really interesting and exciting stuff your planning in these dark days . I work as a peer mentor for a mental health charity and we have done a Zoom drop in which worked fairly well . Good luck and stay safe looking forward to more pod casts
