Caregivers’ voices and experiences brought to life on stage June 9, 2017. Share in their experience! Limited seating—must reserve in advance.
AMI-Quebec Action on Mental Illness and The Centre for the Arts in Human Development at Concordia University proudly present Through the Eyes of Caregivers: an ethnodrama on mental illness in the family. Based on the transcriptions of interviews with over twenty caregivers and the video documentation of a four-hour workshop with fourteen caregivers, this play is called an ethnodrama. It is a kind of research in which the report is an artful, dramatic performance of the informants’ portrayals of their lived experience. It is meant to have “emancipatory and educational potential.” In fact, it is a form of health education aiming to create new approaches to any given health situation; in this case, for caregivers of loved ones with a mental illness. After the one-hour performance, there will be a post-show discussion with the audience.
