The brain: an oxymoron of being central to our existence and an elusive mystery. This dance film explores the topic of mental health and how we cope with that mystery. "Steel Traps Don't Rust" asks: "What do we do when this key, complex system begins to function in ways we no longer recognize? How do we understand and ask for what it needs?" It explores the challenges of internal and external communication conflicts when dealing with mental health and how those translate into a care system. It encourages us to approach care by first listening, rather than telling.

Land acknowledgement

Nicole Faull Productions acknowledges that this work was created and filmed on Treaty 13 land; the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabek, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat, and many other nations and caretakers of the land both recorded and unrecorded. One of our collaborators joined the creation of this work from Treaty 2 land; the traditional territory of the Anishinaabek, Metis, Sioux, and other nations along the important water paasage. We are thankful to have this land to share in the creative process on. We are grateful for having access to the beautiful land that became a setting for this film. During a time when indoor space was inaccessible, the land was there for us. We acknowledge this land is part of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum and honour that by meeting each other where we are at each day, sharing our ideas openly, and approaching the work in the spirit of respectful collaboration.
