The Theatre Practice presents
4.48 PSYCHOSIS 精神崩溃
A masterpiece of mental and emotional extremity… An act of artistic heroism.
– The Daily Telegraph
A remarkable, powerful piece of work.
– The Financial Times
herself she finds again, at 4.48
hours lost, minutes numbed, seconds drip dripping
a mounting sense of medication (but without the aggressive advertising)
weapons of mass prescription
herself she loses again (i don’t know what day it is)
tracing a trail of jagged fragments
corridors of wards of corridors
slamming into her filament of sanity
An audacious theatrical exploration into the darkest recesses of the mind, 4.48 Psychosis is the final and most controversial play by iconic British playwright, Sarah Kane who was hailed as “the most widely produced and fervently admired” of today’s British playwrights (The Guardian).
Directed by Christina Sergeant, Kuo Jing Hong’s solo performance will be a sensory implosion of the text, redefining the prism of psychosis in an original and evocative interplay between language, sound and body in this Singapore premiere.
英国伟大剧作家 Sarah Kane 通过《4.48精神崩溃》一剧，以诗意的语言建构出人内心最阴暗的角落。她赤裸地揭露了精神错乱者孤独的经历以及与主流思维的对抗，勇敢地寻求自省与解脱。这次新加坡的首演，导演 Christina Sergeant 与演员郭劲红将从最原始的情感出发，结合语言、声音、身体的碰撞，重新挖掘文本深处的灵魂，重新构建这座精神之城。
