Two Performers Needed for New Project!

About the show

Way Station continues our artistic exploration of abnormal mental events, looking specifically at the psychological effects of solitary confinement and sensory deprivation. Solitary confinement is currently used in migrant detention centres in the UK for “unmanageable” detainees. This can have lasting psychological damage and is a known form of psychological torture. We are working with Professor Lisa Guenther from Vanderbilt University (USA) whose specialism is solitary confinement.

Way Station combines spoken word and dramatic narrative to create a poem play. Our writer, Joseph Houlders, is currently developing the script with support from the Royal Court after recently completing the Royal Court’s playwriting group.


Rehearsal dates: 28thFeb-10thMarch
