You no longer know where you end or the world starts.
Verrückte invites the audience into a space of stories. It takes you on a tour through the mind of someone, of anyone, of us, of yourself.
The work emerges in between performance, audio-piece and first aid course in mental health. It questions stigmas and romanticized ideas around mental suffering or wellbeing and the image of the mad artist.
What are all the meanings of the word “verrückt”? Where do we draw the line between creativity and madness? How much mental suffering does art need – or does it, at all?
As part of the Styria-Artist-In-Residence program in Graz (AT) we have started to work on ‘Verrückte‘, that will premiere during NewsOFFStyria2019 festival on the 11th of September 2019 in Theater am Lend.
