Event Description

Introduction to Contextual Theatre

Mindfulness has become popular as a way of improving mental health. Is it possible to promote mindfulness through theatre? This is what contextual theatre claims to do. Devised and led by Iwan Brioc, Director of research and practice at The Republic of the Imagination & Artistic Director of Theatr Cynefin.

Mindfulness has become popular as a way of improving mental health. Is it possible to promote mindfulness through theatre? This is what contextual theatre claims to do. 

Using a sequence of different forms of theatre from classical, participatory to immersive; Contextual Theatre invites audiences to turn their attention to the current moment – the amazing feeling of being alive.

It asks us to play with the possibility that “all that is... is this” – what happens inside and outside of us. We are also asked to imagine that what happens doesn’t happen to ‘someone’ – it just happens. The feeling that it happens to ‘someone’ also happens – but it happens to no one! It’s all theatre!

Playing with the live drama that arises from one moment to another is the material that contextual theatre uses on stage. And that stage is in the conscience.

Is it small play or big play? Come and discover.
