Humanity has both a morbid curiosity and an instinctual repulsion when it comes to death. Over the next 50 minutes we'll find out which is stronger. Although it's something we'll all go through, death is one of the least understood parts of the human experience, so Chronic Insanity is diving into the deep end. 52 Souls is an open and fun examination of death and our reactions to this terrifying inevitability. Using a pack of cards, the audience randomly generates a performance to understand humanity's obsession with – and ignorance about – death.
