As part of our work on the MeHeLP project, funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund, we worked with Lokadharmi in Kerala to devise a performance exploring issues around mental illness and stigma that toured to clinic settings across the state.

This was an incredible experience for the company, both in terms of working with a highly talented group of performers and in the creating of a flexible piece of work that sought to help initiate conversation and debate in very different contexts (urban, peri-rural, rural and tribal) about what is a highly sensitive subject in India.

Here are three short films (including a news item on the project) – one / two / three.
