Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
The recording of the first session presented as part of a 3 Day Virtual Seminar Series with Ridiculusmus Theatre Company, about The Eradication of Schizophrenia in Western Lapland.
This play is inspired by the radical treatment for psychosis ‘Open Dialogue’, depicts a family in crisis and aims to de-stigmatize and normalize psychosis. Simultaneous scenes are presented to split audiences before reversal and repetition. This generates a cognitive ‘chaos’ for audiences, gradually shifting towards recognition of the prevalence of mental crisis.
“There’s something electrifying, yet oddly reassuring about this experience. A startling piece of work that challenges how you listen and fathom what you hear” – The Guardian

– Pre-recorded extracts of the piece with live commentary from Jon Haynes and David Woods.
