Therapeutic Theatre Workshops
For the last 20 years Ali Mills has concentrated on promoting her entertainment career, her music cd album and balancing it all with her therapeutic theatre aspirations which include learning more about techniques such as playback theatre, theatre of the oppressed, psychodrama, theatre sports and invisible theatre. Ali has a passion for these theatre techniques and a bigger passion in promoting the use of them as a wonderful, impactive and immensely effective tool for wide community use in conflict resolution activities and in programs where community sharing of hardship stories is valued and can be engaged as a means to an end in promoting community bonding, health and support.
