The Nonsensemakers set up a subsidiary troupe which aim to foster mutual understanding among people with different disabilities (including physically handicap, visual impairment, hearing difficulty and ex-mentally illness) and able-bodied people in 2013.

The grant from CIIF will be ended in this September, we are asking for YOUR help to keep the troupe sustainable.
