Live Performance: Ritual Therapy
MetadataShow full item record
Live performance facilitating a space for difficult emotions -- such as trauma, depression, anxiety, and fear -- can be explored in a safe environment. Diving into painful themes under a creative lens allows participants to closely examine their own deeply held bodily responses to traumatic experiences while being guided through the process by artistic facilitators. In doing so, actors, audience members, and participants alike can commence on a journey in integrating healing practices within a community environment granting people the opportunity to understand their currently held stress-induced anatomical patterns and thinking models, bringing about closure and acceptance.
