Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
The recording of the second session presented as part of a 3 Day Virtual Seminar Series with Ridiculusmus Theatre Company. This session is about 'Give Me Your Love'.
SATURDAY 23RD MAY 2020, 2PM – 3:30PM
The second show in the trilogy explores post-traumatic stress and the therapeutic potential of controlled doses of MDMA. The production signals the mental health experience by unpacking the theatre-viewing experience: in a claustrophobic ‘flat’ one performer remains in a box, with legs only visible throughout the whole show, while only the arm of another performer reaches out to him through the narrow gap in a chained door.
“It’s Ridiculusmus at their best, with their signature blend of silliness and seriousness” – The Stage.
Session 2 schedule:
– Welcome, instructions and introductions with Dr Richard Talbot.
