Simon’s work in performance and other media is informed by a history of mental illness (acute depression & hypomania) and treatment. He is interested in the history and ongoing effects of advances in medicine, and in traversing the boundary of what constitutes ‘normal’ or constructive behaviour. Simon try’s to make his work inclusive, and to leaven the difficulty of speaking about mental illness with dark humour. In recent performances he has established ‘pop up’ medical practices, informed by shamanic and charlatan activities through the ages, offering a range of dubious healing services to audiences.
