SIG Notice: I Could Be Anyone - Performance Ethnography

The University of Malta Faculty for Social Wellbeing would like to invite you to this auto-ethnographic performance – I COULD BE ANYONE, performed by Mr Matthew Scurfield and actress Clare Agius. Both Matthew and Clare have had long and varied careers in theatre, television and film. This performance targets the general public and professionals, practitioners and students in the fields of counselling, psychology, education, health sciences and other helping professions as well as Drama and Theatre studies. The one-hour performance starkly brings out the frustrations and realities of the experience of dyslexia, and will be followed by a discussion.We believe that this theatre event helps raise awareness and sensitivity not only with regard to people with a profile of dyslexia but also with regard to education for all and the experiences of students who find challenges in school and academic learning. We believe in the project so much that we are now presenting this performance in collaboration with AchieveAbility (UK) and a number of other universities and colleges in the UK. Please see link below and the attached PDF for more info.

We hope to see you in the UK.

Best regards,

Dr Ruth Falzon, Member, Department of Counselling
