If you follow contemporary theatre then you will know that Sleepwalk Collective (Swimming Pools) and Christopher Brett Bailey (This is How We Die) are names to conjure with. The two team up for this show about the voices we all have inside our heads. Would you silence them if you could, or do you embrace them? Text and music will be delivered into the audiences' ears via headphones so you really do have a voice in your head as Psychodrama explores our relationship to storytelling and the stories from childhood and TV shows that colonise our minds, in a show that promises cartoonish energy and a deep dive into the psyche.
‘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 spiraling episodes of intense sensuality and phantasmagoric violence. Created and performed by UK/Spanish experimental theatre group Sleepwalk Collective and writer, performer and musician Christopher Brett Bailey – 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?
