As a society consumed by social media & device addiction, controlling overthinking is imperative for good mental health. Creating the ultimate ‘Silent Mind’ is very hard to achieve, however promoting wellbeing & mindfulness can act as early intervention. ‘Silent Mind’ is an interactive piece of theatre which aims to promote awareness on Mental Health, whilst looking at how to support those who may be affected by the issues explored in the play.
The brain requires delicate intertwining, the waves dancing to find their own unique rhythm, finely tuned, coming together to create empathy, cohesion and synchronicity.
Gliding effortlessly into frequencies that release endorphin and dopamine surges ... no need for chemicals ... caffeine, drugs, endless hours of social media fixations and extreme highs ... each wave naturally performing in complete unity ... To create the perfect SILENT MIND.
An immersive and empowering piece of theatre, devised and performed by the Theatre for Life Youth Theatre, supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Audiences are invited to a free post performance workshop run by the charity Solent Mind after the matinee performances on 19th, 20th and 21st June.
The workshop will be exploring the themes within the play with supporting exercises on mental health prevention, wellbeing and mindfulness.
The workshop will also include a Q&A with the cast and creatives.
It is not compulsory and audiences are free to leave at the end of the performance.
