Personal performance about mental illness and care

The novel Het begin en zijn oneindigheid (The Beginning and its Endlessness) features the late in his life depressed Marcel who as it happens ends up being committed to the same hospital his granddaughter had stayed when she was treated for her eating disorder. So to what extent can we ourselves choose who we are? To what degree can derangement be hereditary and what exactly triggers it? When does one’s recovery start and more important, when does it end?

Corinne Heyrman lets you experience these care issues featured in her debut novel for yourself during this namesake live performance. Together with the improvising percussionist Michelle Samba she draws you into the dilemmas and contemplations when facing mental illness. A relevant as well as urgent performance which will change your very own view on care indeed.
