The Mental Health Association of Portland is proud to announce its new association with the Portland-based theatre company, From the Inside Out.
From the Inside Out has been providing interactive theatre productions for the past two years focusing on issues important to people with mental illness.
Interactive theatre comes from a method taught by Augusto Boal (pictured) in his Theatre of the Oppressed, which invites spectators into the play to solve problems and respond emotionally to the content presented by the actors.
The Mental Health Association of Portland will act as a fiscal agent for From the Inside Out to assist in raising funds and awareness for the program.
