"Madness? Just the ultimate freedom"

A reflective piece of devised theater one and half years in the making that explores Reason and Unreason as ways of attaining a different understanding of reality.

We often look at mental illness as a reaction to social pressure in a performance-oriented age where efforts to cloister ourselves in virtual worlds, escape our surroundings and push our problems from our consciousness only generate psycho-spiritual stress. But insanity can also be viewed from another perspective. As a parallel world operating under different principles, a space of originality, imagination and ultimate freedom.
