A fun accessible dance and theatre workshop (no experience necessary) with Viv Gordon exploring the themes and creative processes used in her show ORAL (you’ll need to wear loose, comfortable clothes you can move freely in).

Viv Gordon is a theatre maker & arts and mental health campaigner. Currently she is developing new projects that continue to explore the creative articulation of trauma: ORAL explores sexual abuse, dentistry, food and crocodiles and Restless is an arts activism project developing visibility and voice for survivors. She is also working on a new commission from Life of Breath, writing a play about the lived experience of adversity called The Book of Jo. Viv’s previous work includes: I am Joan (an autobiographical hopeful comedy about trauma recovery) and PreScribed (a life written for me) that explored the side effects of being a GP in the 21st Century.

Viv is an Associate Artist with Strike a Light Festival & a Discovery Artist with Pavilion Dance SW and has led work with vulnerable adults and families since 2003 as Artistic Director of Mean Feet Dance. She campaigns and speaks at conferences/events about mental health inclusion in the arts; plus offers training and consultancy, working with individuals and organisations to develop arts and mental health projects.
