Following Part I, in / cognitō continues to explore mental health issues in a new innovative format: a living art exhibit. With no formal seating, though seats are available, this original performance, derived from the performers’ personal struggles, is an interactive theatrical experience which puts mental health on display – literally. Audience members can come in at any time and walk through  the performance space, as the actors pull off an impressive endurance piece which runs continuously, in a loop, throughout the afternoon. The public is invited to view the exhibit for as long as they like, once they have entered. Multilingual.

in / cognitō premiered at Studio Fleur D’Asphalte on May 28th, 2017.
Montreal, QC

Funds were raised for Expressions LaSalle centre communautaire en santé mentale. The centre is the only facility on the island of Montreal which offers bilingual drama, art, music and relaxation therapy at no charge. Donations can be made, on site, during the presentation.
