Description

The Eradication of Schizophrenia in Western Lapland is informed by a treatment for psychosis that has seen amazing results in Western Lapland. The audience is divided in two while sections of the play run concurrently on either side of a wall. It is only in Act Two, when the audiences switch sides, that the full story is revealed. This innovative staging offers visitors a unique and three-dimensional insight into what it is to be psychotic.
