In this workshop, David Diamond would use Theatre for Living to work with the participants as representative members of a community bound together by their experiences with mental health and illness. Participants would be prepared to share their perspectives by going through a series of games and exercises that facilitates awareness and integration of their body and mind. Therefore all stakeholders would be given a common and safe space and method to express their perspectives together on an equal platform. This workshop incorporates Image Theatre and either Rainbow of Desire or Cops in the Head and play creation to explore issues and create community-specific theatre.
The process of the workshop would culminate in a public performance of a participatory play created during the workshop. Key members involved in providing mental health services (Policy group members, hospital administrators, Heads of educational institutes, community leaders, NGO’S, celebrities involved in mental health advocacy, etc.) would be invited to view the play. The perspectives expressed during the six-day workshop including the public performance would be documented for submission to relevant groups such as National Mental health Policy Group, Ministry for Health and Family Welfare etc.
