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.
Art originates from life. Theatre is like a mirror that reflects the people and happenings in life from a different perspective, encouraging us to look within ourselves and to observe the ways of others.
Kuo Jian Hong | Artistic Director
