Everyone Everyday - Forum theatre about Disability in Schools

 

In 2015 Rebus was given funding from Disability ACT to run forum theatre classes in two schools - Wanniassa School and Lake Tuggeranong College. The classes ran for a whole Semester and culminated in performances based on the student's lived experience of inclusion to family, friends and staff at the end of the year.

The group from Wanniassa School was made of year 7 and 8 students, and produced three Shows.

Life - A play about mental illness and depression

Deaf - A play about a student with a hearing impairment and their struggles in an emergency situation.

Broken Leg - A play about temporary disability, in this case, a broken leg.

The group from Lake Tuggeranong College comprised of Year 11 and 12 students and produced three shows.

Me, myself and my thoughts - A play about mental illness and the various coping mechanisms that can develop.

Battles - A play about the difference between physical disability and mental illness, and how they can interplay, manifest and be received in different ways.

Dyslexia - a play about the struggles one with Dyslexia can encounter when trying to learn in a text based educational system.

Overall, both groups said they gained a lot of confidence and insight from the experience.
