A production by Independent Little Lies - ILL in coproduction with Centre Culturel Kulturfabrik d'Esch-sur-Alzette and Centre Culturel Régional opderschmelz Dudelange. With the support of Ministère de la Culture, Ville d'Esch-sur-Alzette and Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte
Solo-performed by Catherine Elsen, visually designed by artist Anne Lindner and directed by Sandy Artuso, Independent Little Lies brings Sarah Kane’s last play to the opderschmelz.
4.48 Psychosis is a powerful and intense exploration of the darkness and the light fighting inside the mind of the protagonist, an intense ride through their mental descent. The virtuosic and precise use of the language, the lyrical potency of this powerful text starkly contrasts with the main theme: the decline of the mental health of the dramatic “I”. But as always in Sarah Kane’s plays, there is hope, and especially through the visual directing and a multifaceted performance, this production will explore the brightness hidden in this text.
