According to a study conducted by the World Health Organisation, an estimated 25 percent of the worldwide population is affected by a mental or neurological disorder at some point in their lives. Although the mental disorder is one of the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide, stigma and discrimination often make difficulties worse and prevent people from finding a purpose in life. Thus, it is common that people with disabilities are unable to support themselves throughout their lives and become dependent on social support schemes. The main organiser of the project, the Baltazar Theatre Company, is one of the very few artistic companies in the V4 region that employs and focuses on people with mental disabilities. In other words, all of the actors employed are salaried, thus, they can financially support their parents, relatives, or themselves.
