This new community-based project has had Sarasvàti’s artists team up with Artists in Health Care, Red Threads Playback Theatre and the Selkirk Mental Health Centre as well as working with multiple community organizations such as the Manitoba Schizophrenia Society. Workshops and research occurred in the fall of 2015.
Join us for a staged reading of the resulting play based on stories from the community. What are the challenges for those with a mental health diagnosis and what is needed to support recovery? Follow five characters as their stories weave in and out to depict experiences with the system, community response, internal struggles and ultimately the desire for understanding. Provide your feedback and responses as part of the development of this important script.
