Julie Duclos takes Lars Norén’s text and immerses the spectator in a chilling psychiatric confinement. The patients’ daily lives cross paths without any real story emerging. In the fragments of life, the obsessions and doubts of each of them, a mirror is held up to the spectator. In the hospital ward, the boundaries between normality and madness are blurred. The choral play takes a raw and humane look at those whom society and its violence has relegated to the margins. Julie Duclos’ naturalistic and almost documentary-like staging does not inhibit – on the contrary – the dark poetry and humour that run through the play. A moment of total theatre that leaves no one indifferent.
