Y(our) Mental Health: A Dance Story Production

Mental Health in Motion | instagram.com/mentalhealthinmotiondanceco

Do you have a mental or social health topic that feels important to explore and learn about with your neighbors? Mental Health in Motion can work with you to develop a one-of-a-kind educational dance production for your neighborhood, in which audience members will be able to not only hear about the subject, but also see its intricacies and invisible aspects played out in a dance production. This holistic approach to education can help increase self-awareness, evoke a heart knowledge, and deepen one’s empathy toward others. If desired, it can include an interactive workshop component for audience members to engage more deeply with the topic.

Participants: For 20 to as many participants as the space can accommodate
Ages: The workshop is typically structured for adults, but a youth-oriented event is possible.
Value: $1,500.00
Requirements: Please provide a flat performance surface of least 16 x 20 feet. The space can be indoors or outdoors, and past events have been created on everything from an actual indoor stage to a concrete parking lot. Electricity is helpful, but not required. Audience members will need a place to sit. Dance productions could be anywhere from 20-45 minutes long.
