4.48 psicosis (2003)

Mapa Teatro's piece 4.48 Psicosis, based on Sarah Kane's posthumous play, references that time at dawn where psychotic crisis episodes present themselves. The text is not a product of depression but a dramatic poem where words are decanted by disillusionment, a solo symphony at 4:48 am, the happy hour when clarity pays a visit. In this production, the voice -- along with music and fragmented images -- is configured in space as a poetic sound installation. Three voices are present: that of a fragmented mind, that of a woman in love with absence, and the soft psychiatric voice of reason. The resulting performance is not a representation or a description of Kane's texts, but a series of photograms portraying the journey of a woman pierced by visions of a dehumanized world.
