Workshops will be delivered by Viki Browne, an experienced performer and workshop leader who recently devised and performed an autographical piece about her own mental illness. She uses theatre to tackle complex and taboo issues in an informed and compassionate way. She is interested in exploring different methods including lighting, projection, text, humour, music, recognisable images from pop culture to say the unsayable. She has worked with the Bristol Old Vic, The Bikeshed Theatre, Off the Record, Rethink and is a member of Bristol-based arts collective Interval.
