Abstract

6. This document explores the practices and processual experiences of facilitators and participants of Out of Character Theatre Company and Converge Dance classes, both of which offer weekly workshops in performance to people using mental health services. Through a process of collaborative action research, the dual dynamics of 'precariousness' and 'groundedness' emerge, leading to an exploration of risk-taking in such practice. Such a process challenges potentially problematic discourses arising from experiences of mental health care and may develop a discourse of resistance to living in a state of social and economic of precarity.
