A ground-breaking theatre project asking the hard questions about mental health and the mental health system, for anyone with lived experience of mental ill-health, including people who aren’t sure if they exactly fit that definition, or aren’t comfortable with that language. Directed by Rebus Artistic Director Robin Davidson and assistant director Joel Swadling, Systems of Sanity uses theatre games, exercises and techniques to explore different ways of thinking and communicating about mental health, mental illness, and the mental health system, with the option of being in a performance.
Systems of Sanity has been meeting by Zoom since August, and is opening up for new participants to join us when we return to in-person rehearsals.
When? Tuesdays 1pm – 4pm during school terms. Restarting 1 February 2021. There is no initial commitment, come for as long as it suits you.
Where? Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres, Braddon.
Who? Anyone with lived experience of mental ill-health, including people who aren’t sure if they exactly fit that definition.
How much? Free.
