Upstate Theatre Project in association with Droichead Arts Centre present Lysis

Lysis definition:

(biology) the disintegration of a cell by rupture of the cell wall or membrane
(medical) the subsidence of one or more symptoms of an acute disease

Based on the writings and testimonies of people living with mental health issues, Lysis is a docudrama that traces the experiences of five individuals. This audio-visual installation is a forthright portrait of people side-lined by society through everyday stigma, prejudice and general ignorance toward mental health. Lysis journeys through psychosis and toward recovery, challenging for the right to be recognised beyond diagnoses. A celebration of the genuine strength of human character.

Created by members of Shine, a mental health support group.

Facilitated & Directed by Declan Mallon. Installation Design: Kieran McNulty | Audio Design: Carl Kennedy| Video Design: Kilian Waters and Dan Keane (Arcade Films).

Performed by: Grainne Rafferty, Anthony Kinahan, Leah Rossiter, Niall O’Brien, Sarah Hope Guppy, Anne Nolan.

The project premiered  as  part of Drogheda Arts Festival in May 2018.

Event at 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, 8pm – see booking link for details.
