Sarah Kane’s final play is a raw and sincere landscape of the psychotic mind. It is a story about someone who desperately wanted to communicate, to be understood; to be seen a person and not as an illness. 4.48 Psychosis allows us to observe the struggle of the self to remain intact and its inevitable fall.
Recreating an internal visual depiction of the human mind in turmoil. A barren space, and a mind which is full of potentiality at the same time. Exploring the fragmentation of self, the losing of borders that the psychotic mind experiences, the performance asks the audience to enter a subterranean labyrinth and encounter the complexity of the human memory, imagination and perception in all of its terror and beauty.
We have created a world open to its audience, a theatre of deconstruction which invites you to enter a region of the mind most of us would hope never to see.
Enter our labyrinth.
