About the project:
The project investigates the term “Mapenzi” which is used to describe vagabonds and mentally ill persons in Zimbabwe. The project is an innovative performance investigation that will borrow from two cultures, the Zimbabwean healing ritual and the traditional theatrical performance aesthetic of Denmark.

Relevance for Globus Opstart:
The global collaboration focuses on discrimination and stigmas towards mental illness as a global phenomenon, that can create severe consequences such as social exclusion and inequitable treatment towards people with experience of mental health conditions.
