Heart Beat

The Heartbeat Project – an alliance between academic institutions and artistic organisations – co-created a study of the impact and efficacy of the transfer of a virtual theatre methodology for working with autistic people from the UK to Peru.

The study brought together People’s Palace Projects (a research centre at Queen Mary University of London), the Centre of Excellence in Chronic Diseases/CRONICAS (a research centre at the Cayetano Heredia University in Peru), British company Flute Theatre and Teatro La Plaza in Lima.

The World Health Organisation estimated in 2021 that one in 160 children suffer from autism spectrum disorder (ASD) worldwide.
