(SINCERE MOMENTS OF VITALITY)
A PHYSICAL COMEDY EXPLORATION OF MENTAL ILLNESS
GESTURE THEATRE AND MODERN CLOWNING
Andrèn just wanted to fit in society
Attina just wanted to speak with her plant
Angelo just wanted to do his job
4 walls, 3 destinies, 1 apartment. A plumber from Eastern Europe, a florist, and a nurse share their daily paths within a psychiatric ward, in a comic and bizarre magnetic resonance of our reality.
The central theme of the play is the description of mental illness and states of psychosis or mental deviance shown through physical comedy and theatre. The protagonists share the stage area which represents an apartment of a psychiatric treatment centre. The story is set within a 24 hour-period beginning from morning when the patients wake up to evening, when they have to go to bed.
A show where visual comedy situations (object trouvé, eccentric character, clowning) alternate with moments of physical theater so as to engage the audience by means of an innovative and surreal comic language. An alternative view of the humanity and intimate eccentricity hidden within all of us.
