The Timeline includes hyperlinks to the documents, indicating key stages in Talbot’s contribution to devising, touring in performance, facilitating residencies, and curating public engagement in the process of creating the trilogy of plays Dialogue as the Embodiment of Love (2014-2019), by Ridiculusmus. The project examines an interdisciplinary practice-as-research dialogue between clinical therapeutic approaches to three mental health conditions and performance-making. The conditions are psychosis, PTSD, and ‘complicated grief’, defined in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual DSM-5 (2013) as ‘disorders’; and the process of creating, performing and disseminating a performance response to each condition is analysed through a discussion of each play in turn.
