In this musical, we meet some different characters who all suffer from hypochondria. In the elevator, the waiting room and at the doctor’s, their anxiety is expressed through song. Inner torments take on physical expressions and in the meeting between patient and healthcare staff, friction arises which causes the headache to affect us all.
There are a large number of click bait articles relating to body ailments that do not soothe the anxiety that many may have about their physical health. To seek help for things that worries you shouldn't be that strange, but why do you always feel like a burden?
‘Sjukvårdsuppropet’ and Covid-19 have contributed to expose the increased strains on the health sector. In these times, you get dismissed more often than not. I have therefore chosen to base my project on the theme of hypochondria because of its intense connection to feelings of guilt and shame.
The project has resulted in a short film that is approx. 3-4 minutes long. The musical format is used as a method to get an insight into the characters’ minds in a short time. Heavy emotions can take place without the film itself being particularly dark.
