Collide Theatre Presents:Sarah Kane's4.48 Psychosis

After a sold-out run in July, Collide debut production opens in the Crypt again!

***** 'A incredibly powerful production' - Plays To See

**** 'An absolutely brilliant performance... The written word is not enough to convey the power of being in the crypt with the play going on' - LondonTheatre1

'There is no benchmark I can offer, no relevant experience to relate it to, but in terms of pure stagecraft it is an excellent envisioning of a very difficult play, and an experience worth undertaking, even if only because it is different from anything else out there.' A Younger Theatre

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 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, or 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 and psyche in all of its terror and beauty.

We have created a world open to its audience, a theatre of deconstruction which invites us to enter a region of the mind most of us would hope never to see.

Enter the labyrinth, but remember: you will be able to exit but someone else will stay there, trapped forever.

Disstemma, an ongoing series of collective exhibitions, facilitates the dialogue among artists working around a common theme, providing a platform for exhibiting in unusual contexts. Disstemma 7 is the latest incarnation of this series. It brings together artists who use connecting multi-layered logics, spatial and temporal positioning, disordered recognitions, and shifting standpoints between the natural, the synthetic and the virtual, in order to interrogate the relative reality of complex visual sensation.
