POMMER, Carolina Demaman  and  ROCHA, Cristianne Famer. Nau of Freedom: nomad crossing between theater and mental health institutionalization. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2015, vol.5, n.3, pp.45-60. ISSN 2238-152X.

The objective of this article is to address the Psychiatric Reform of the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, from an analysis of the theater group Nau da Liberdade, composed by mental health users, workers and students. From the narration of the process of creation of the group, in 2012, we draw connections between art and a possible path for deinstitutionalization, consolidation of psychosocial care networks and care in liberty, without disregarding the many challenges that Psychiatric Reform still finds during its journey. In order to contribute with this process, there is the decision of investigating - with theater - how a group of madmen-actors can challenge the institutionality of the ways of working with art in mental healthcare with a method that conceives life as a work of art in process.

Keywords : Theater; Mental Health; Deinstitutionalization; Work in Process.
