Therapist

Abused by those entrusted to heal her, a young woman suffering from illness lures us into a sphere where the identity becomes a disease. Moments of wry humour punctuate this sinister exploration of the line between ‘medical touch’ and the rape-like touch of physical examinations.

‘A bracingly good exploration of the mental and physical impact of illness… Performing with exemplary commitment, Vardimon and company make disturbing and authentic links between precarious health and eroticism. This highly stylized piece features a strong and varied choice of music and video’ TIME OUT
