Abstract

The following paper is a description of an applied project. It describes the therapeutic theater process of the Superpowers Junkanoo group that I led at the Frances Rehabilitation Centre in the Bahamas. All group members were Frances residents. Each participant ranged in age, developmental, and physical abilities. They were generally diagnosed as acute-chronic and for the most part communicated non-verbally. The Superpowers' performance in the Frances Junkanoo parade was the culmination of a five-month performance-oriented dramatherapeutic process. This paper documents how participants worked towards and reached individual goals of increased mobility, emotional expression, independent choice-making, and communication to reach towards long-term group goals of heightened self-esteem, community involvement, and improved quality of life
