9th sense

Based on the contribution of the partnership

“Drama therapy, like other tools, is sought when people are already in distress. However, everyone has childhood traumas: implicit memory clusters that cause problems. Participatory theatre practice offers an opportunity for inner development, particularly for people who have not yet realized that behind the difficulties of their everyday lives lie implicit reactions from the past, which they can resolve by revealing them”.

The niche publication is a comprised theory, regards, techniques and exercises helping to establish inclusive, small scale, democratic groups for any purpose as resources of mental
and physical health, personal growth, creativity, reason and collective wisdom in rural, remote or isolated environments.
According to our analysis there is a great need to explain and demonstrate evidences of theatre’s positive impact on mental health, life-quality and social stability.

The book was created under the coordination of the partner Utcaszak Színházi Alkotó Közösség and written by Balázs Simon, who used the contribution of every partner.
