Currently: OLD VIC LONG COVID WELLNESS PROJECT
The Old Vic’s Long COVID Wellness Project investigated the benefits of engaging with the arts to support those with long COVID.
This research-based, participatory creative intervention worked with specialist movement and voice practitioners to create a six-week programme working with 20 adults with long COVID. The weekly sessions focused on using movement, breathing and theatre techniques to support symptoms and wellbeing.
The project began with a five-month research period to gain insight into the impact of long COVID on individuals’ day-to-day lives, mental health and wellbeing. This research informed our Movement Practitioner, Rachael Nanyonjo, and Voice Practitioner, Charlie Hughes D’Aeth, as they co-created six weekly workshop sessions that were offered for free and delivered in two groups — one taking part online and one in person. During delivery, practitioners and participants were supported by HCPC registered Dramatherapist, Sam Adams.
