‘I think of a child’s mind as a blank book’ – Walt Disney
Racing across the savage inner-landscape of the human mind, two unlikely (anti)heroes pursue a nightmare vision of freedom through spiralling episodes of intense sensuality and phantasmagoric violence. Psychodrama is a gooey, drippy dream of a show, a pop-cultural exorcism, a runaway train riding a burnt synapse through the centre of your skull.
A celebration of the corrosive power of storytelling that asks who are all those voices inside your head? and how did they get there? and if you could silence those voices, would you?
Psychodrama is a new show created and performed by writer, performer and musician Christopher Brett Bailey and UK/Spanish experimental theatre group Sleepwalk Collective.
