Since the start of the pandemic, lots of young people have been much more isolated than before which has resulted in them spending more time online and retreating into themselves. As things start to open back up it’s important to consider the impact that the pandemic has had on young people. I’m interested in exploring what is perceived as ‘shyness’ in children and young people, which manifests itself in many ways. Throughout this week I’ll be exploring how young people deal with this, how people respond to them and what they think makes them feel this way. Creating a physical form to express what words never could, and in doing so explore the factors and perception of ‘shyness’ through music, movement and text.
