SUMMARY

Folie à Deux takes the audience on a journey through the minds of two very unique individuals: one who believes he is dead, the other who has forgotten her past. The story takes place in a retreat for the mentally unwell where we meet the two characters sharing a room and their memories.

Centred around a huge scaffold structure and ground-breaking multi-touch screen, these unforgettable characters will whisk you away into the theatre of their minds where the imagination is unleashed. Falling from extreme heights, entombed under rubble, the impossible journey of a ball... all become reality in this mesmerising horizon of the imagination.

Directed by internationally renowned Bim Mason, this new performance delicately combines the physicality of expression and ground-breaking technology with the tragic interplay of these two characters that is sure to pull at everyone's heartstrings.

Folie à Deux universally resonates with the search for who we are and where our place in the world is. An intimate tale of both human experience and loss and the delicate kindness that can appear in the cracks of distress.
