Training and helping young people in the art of miming, teaching them to laugh and make other people laugh is part of our job.
After all, we are professional happiness deliverers, aren’t we?.
Mental illness may sound very scary, especially if you don’t know much about it.
Everybody understands how painful it can be breaking one’s leg and being unable to walk for a while.
Figures tell us that one in four people in the developed world will experience a mental health problem in the near future.
Generally speaking, about 10% of youngsters have had a mental health problem at any one time.
Getting mentally ill may be due to a chemical imbalance in the brain. Perhaps. Does anyone really know for sure?
Whatever the case may be, we want to give them a chance and show them that life is worth living.
From the practical point of view, our aim is to offer our users a rather unusual contract.
Their body will become a work tool which will make people smile.
Their body will do all that their mind would want to express and perhaps is unable to do right now.
We would like that, at least half of the Lluna Gatuna theatre company, is made up by our users.
And let us not forget that at the end of the show, the applauses surely arrive for everybody and…Isn’t that nice?
Miming is an art which entails a good deal of training that our users will go through.
Their role is to give a warm welcome to our audience, make them laugh, cry…provide them with an unforgettable experience!
