Theatre Recovery Programme For Injured Military Personnel

waterside

7:01am 6th November 2014

A pioneering theatre project is set to be a new "alternative way" for injured military personell in Buckinghamshire to get their lives back.

Bravo 22 Company officially starts today - and it's starts in Aylesbury - aiming to get wounded soldiers involved in theatre - as a way to 'find their voice' once again.

The performance art is designed to improve military personnel's self-awareness, confidence, and motivation to support their individual recovery after any trauma - including support into the civilian workplace.

Bravo 22 Company Project in Buckinghamshire is supported by funding from The Royal British Legion and the Community Covenant Fund.

Producer Alice Driver told Mix - it all started when she spoke to a soldier in hospital:

"He said to me when you become wounded you become incredibly vulnerable. You lose your sense of self, your pupose but fundamentaly your voice.

So I decided to create the first theatre recovery project with the MoD - they'd never used theatre before."
