An asylum, whose pavilions have become a parking lot. The work ceased to be hospitable, now for the limited staff that resists everything there is moving cars in exchange for a few pesos that leave the party halls opposite.
"Artaud" has as its starting point the compilation of "Letters from Rodez", which Antonin wrote in 1945 to his psychiatrist Henri Parisot.
This work approaches with sordidness, humor and charm a complex field that is in crisis - both before and now - in our societies: that of mental health, psychiatric hospitals and the borders between health and disease, madness and lucidity.
Artaud was conceived for the Invocations Cycle at the San Martín Cultural Center.
