Event description

Description

Clive Parkinson’s powerful performance-presentation, dis/ordered is a moving exploration of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), fueled by the conviction that what psychiatry describes as ‘disorder’, may in fact be a legitimate response to the chaos of life.

Dis/ordered (Visual Matrix)

On 23rd September only, Dis/ordered will be followed immediately by a separate facilitated discussion of the performance-presentation using the Visual Matrix method. An innovation of the Psycho-Social Research Unit at the University of Central Lancashire, the Visual Matrix is designed to capture emotional and conceptual responses to complex experiences, (in this case, relating to the subject of OCD) using film/visual material as a stimulus. Its purpose is to facilitate discussion, privileging felt experience rather than professional discourse. To that end, the Visual Matrix is open to participants with diverse forms of personal, family/community or professional experience of OCD.

Please note that the Visual Matrix is a formal research process that has received Ethics approval (ref. HC15513). Participation requires attendance for the full session. The session will be audio recorded and analysis of the discussion may be published, although participants will not be identified. In order to participate in the Visual Matrix, you will be required to read and sign an Ethics consent form on the day of the event.

For further participant information on the visual matrix research process and a copy of the consent form, please contact Rachael Kiang at r.kiang@unsw.edu.au or please download form from the event page.

Note: In order to attend the Visual Matrix, participants are required to attend and view Dis/ordered. If you haven’t purchased tickets to Dis/ordered, you can do so here.

Please be aware that the discussion-based programs offered by The Big Anxiety DO NOT provide counselling, therapy, psychiatric medical care, or crisis support.

If you are distressed or need assistance while attending the festival, please make contact with The Big Anxiety staff/volunteers. The Big Anxiety volunteers are not health professionals, but are trained to direct you to appropriate supports.
