REPORT DETAIL

A question raised in response to meeting lots of theatremakers who are frequently physically and/or mentally unwell. What about our work and industry contributes to good or poor wellbeing?

:(
Bad spaces
Poor lighting
London
The myth that theatre is always fun
Body stress
Lack of routine
Feeling alone (in or out of a rehearsal room)

:)
Fresh air
Cornwall
Space
The sea
The sky
Exercise
Perspective on wider picture of life
Hobbies
Physical warm up
Good work
Getting older and wiser

We then talked a bit about the population of the room this year. More babies, slightly older group (not so many fresh graduates) and the calm, more ‘well’ feeling that people seemed to be exuding.

We also talk a bit about creativity and whether creativity makes us unwell of if it is just the structures around it.

We spoke about the many times this weekend we'd heard creativity referenced as small openings of space rather than a big all-encompassing force.
