Tickled by the psychological theatre of Flamingo Feather
You haven’t yet heard of Flamingo Feather? About time you paid attention…
This Brazilian-British duo, IIana Gorban and Simon Rice, explore different means of communication via performance. They form Flamingo Feather, a theatre company using interdisciplinary methods to devise original works that explore psychological well-being.
This September sees various new events: on the 14th, prepare yourself for a literally hilarious experience – a laughing session at the Book Club (7.30pm, £5), set to turn monthly. Using techniques to provoke genuine laughter, the session focuses on mental health; after all, laughter is the best medicine.
On Sept 17th, the pair presents ‘Chasing Your Tale’ at the Wellcome Collection, the result of work with a psychiatrist, highlighting positive solutions for anxiety and depression. They then head to Brasil through the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, to research models of social inclusion related to performance.
