Mental illness does not discriminate. Although there is more access to information, many still suffer silently or face stigma when they come out with their illness. What is this experience like for actors in Singapore? Are they expected to just deal with their mental health issues because they are seen as 'tortured artists' and 'so full of drama'?
Twenty actors who have experienced or are going through mental health issues were interviewed for this project. Acting Mad is based on the verbatim texts of these interviews.
Can sharing our stories, and creating theatre, be a form of solace and support?
Featuring: Al-Matin Yatim, Andre Chong, Karen Tan and Masturah Oli
Director: Haresh Sharma
Lighting Designer: Stella Cheung
Text: Haresh Sharma, Harris Albar and Maryam Noorhimli
