We are thrilled to share our latest venture in collaboration with Thumbprint Studios Chicago, COLLAB 24! Our mission for this festival is that WE ALL embody artistic growth, mental wellbeing, national networking and creative joy through national networking.
We will host adults and teens ages 13 - 17.
Mentalhaus is a devised theatre company with high, yet modest artistic standards. We value an emphasis in relationships between the ensemble and our witnesses; acknowledging everyone as a necessary "Element" of our work. We are curious and therefore always investigating and creating opportunities for all to train as a life-long learners.
With the looming pandemic we attempt to navigate the birth of Mentalhaus as a virtual entity. We believe this environment serves as an opportunity to fulfill our desire to cultivate a national and international ensemble base.
But why mental health? That's a lifetime of history that will be unpacked in time. It begins at birth.
To provide embodied, ensemble-based, devised theatre that explores themes rooted in mental health.
A space for our super-fans to learn more about the lives of our Founders as they navigate how to build a theatre in today's online environment. Subscribe monthly for special engagements including live conversations about mental health, creative process and the challenges in between. Once you become an Element you can access the "Elementalhaus" tab.
Keep up with the latest news from Mentalhaus.
