Stress: This Is My Life

Top of page

In your face and utterly riveting, Stress: This Is My Life makes a bold statement about youth. Drawing on a range of issues, some from personal experience, spoken-word/dub poetry artist Kyra Shaughnessy addresses the trials of disaffected youth with power and artistry. Casting her words to the rhythmic beat of instrumental dub tracks, she takes on a range of issues, from heightened parental expectations to the extremes of peer and social pressures. Interspersed with Kyra's candid interview segments the piece is five minutes in duration.
