Discussing Disgust


Rebus artistic director Robin Davidson partnered with Bradley Foxlewin, a mental health lived experience advocate and psychotherapist, to lead a one day workshop on the experience of disgust in the therapeutic alliance. The workshop was attended by nine people, including professional therapists, people with lived experiences of mental health challenges and others seeking to understand more fully the topic. The workshop drew on Bradley’s training in Gestalt psychotherapy, Robin’s work in the Theatre of the Oppressed, and his recent training in the pedagogy of movement theatre with Giovanni Fusetti in Italy. One of the many highlights of the workshop, the unpacking of a single moment of a relationship affected by drug use, conducted with participants, was deeply moving and the source of much reflection on the impacts and consequences of disgust.
