Healthcare is an intense site of ritual and performance; and placebo studies have explored the performative aspects of being a healthcare professional. This short taster workshop will introduce some simple arts based exercises and methods to explore elements such tone of voice, non-verbal communication, objects and space, scenery and language, and how they impact on healthcare interactions.

Part of The Power of Placebo – a national programme of events to accompany our new performance, Placebo.
