A group of students from Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong (LPCUWC) is staging a verbatim theatre that tackles the struggles of those who suffer from mental illness in Hong Kong society, on 8 March, 7:30PM at the McAulay Studio, Hong Kong Arts Centre.

50966645 10156147387511409 5254236013789708288 nDubbed “In Your Head”, the performance takes the audience into the world of mental health in Hong Kong to experience the daily challenges of those that suffer from and fight mental illness.
Its narrative is based on true stories, a product of research and interviews by 12 LPCUWC students with both individuals with mental illness and mental health professionals in Hong Kong.

“In Your Head” uses verbatim theatre, a form of documentary theatre that works around the actual words of people as a basis for the script and performance. Verbatim amplifies the voices of those often unheard or misunderstood or those not treated with equality and respect in society.

This is the eighth year of the Verbatim Theatre project of LPCUWC. Previously, the group has collaborated and performed with physically and mentally challenged youth (Beijing), orphans (Cambodia) and refugees (twice in Hong Kong), ex-prison offenders, the homeless and the LGBT+ communities in Hong Kong.
