The Department of Dramatic Arts presents . . .
Creativity, Art and the Margins of Mental Health
Monday, January 14th, 2008
Pond Inlet at Brock University, St. Catharines, ON
On January 14, 2008, the Department of Dramatic Arts at Brock University will host an interdisciplinary, one-day symposium on the topic of mental health, ‘madness’ and creativity as part of its mainstage season featuring performances of Caryl Churchill’s The Skriker and Peter Weiss’ Marat/Sade. The symposium’s aim is to investigate this emergent theme of our mainstage productions from a multiplicity of vantage points by bringing together scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplines. Of particular interest is the arguably contentious and challenging process of representing ‘madness’ in performance and other forms of artistic expression.
