State of Insanity throws the completely arbitrary division between ‘healthy’ and ‘sick’ overboard and explores the interrelatedness of art and insanity.
In this edition of Frascati Issues, we will be looking into the world of psychiatry. What exactly goes on in our vulnerable upstairs suite? Are we able to find a place for ‘thinking outside the box’ as a society – or can we even learn from this? Can the crisis also be a resource? After all, insanity and creativity are often bedfellows. Which is why State of Insanity is also an ode to dislocation. Because maybe madness and innovation are part of the same process.
This edition presents three productions in English. By NTGent (BE) and The Vacuum Cleaner (UK).
Frascati Issues puts burning social issues in the spotlight. Through productions, performances, debates and everything in between, we open up a different view of today’s world. With a new focus each time, and always in close cooperation with organisations from the social field concerned.
