Performance at Viljandi Academy of Culture

Project title

Etendus Viljandi Kultuuriakadeemias

Description of initiative

This performance is based on the shared very personal stories of the participants (i.e. students), which the actors immediately performed on stage. People shared their memories that still haunt them. The theater troupe acted out these situations and people said they were inspired by it. The joint analysis of the specialist and the audience was also important.
In the hall, where paintings of people suffering from mental health were also displayed, a nice synergy was created, the staged situations were also discussed. Among people in audience were teachers, youth workers and a group of social workers, such as Uku Presmann, crisis worker and member of the group of participatory theater.
