Original live music, new short films, contemporary dance and theatre come together in this multidisciplinary work that creates 'living-through' experiences of psychosis. Exploring the very essence of a psychotic experience, Parting was developed alongside clinical and research psychologist, Dr. Vaughan Bell (University College London), to create vivid sonic and visual illu­sions that transport the audience into a delusional and hallucinatory world of warped visions and skewed realities. By Effy Efthymiou and Litha Efthymiou.
