Acute psychosis. Catastrophic illness. The genocide in Rwanda. Mirror neurons, crying on airplanes, hiding in papyrus leaves, and government plots to sell your unused brain-space. These seemingly disparate themes converge into a powerful story of personal and political recovery. Based on a true story… I think.

About the artist/company
Five years after presenting the local Fringe hit and Beat: Dish award-winning Not: A Bev Oda Memoir in London Ontario, playwright and performer Clara Madrenas presents Recovery Show. This riveting solo performance is based on Madrenas’ own experiences of psychosis during a field study of the Rwandan genocide and the near-death illness of her partner. Transforming trauma, violence and stigma into poetry and creative expression, Madrenas portrays three distinct characters weaving together an understanding of what it means to recover in community with one another.

Credits
Written and performed by Clara Madrenas, directed by Sydney Gilchrist and remixed by Jeff Preston, visual concept and photography by Rima Sater.
