I provided psychological insight and dramaturgy support for a performance about waste. Of particular concern was the psychological impact on the artists of engaging deeply with a major and traumatic ecological issue.
My role was to advise on the development of the performance from a psychological perspective. For example, exploring ways to integrate the fear, trauma and anger that may emerge from the audience, into the performance itself.
I also held a pastoral role to help the performers process their own psychological responses to the ecological issues raised in the project.
