Cleansed in USA

Sarah Kane - Cleansed - Love me or kill me 

Sarah Kane's Cleansed is performed in Houston, USA from 5- 27 April 2024.  It is on at the Catastrophic Theatre in Houston, USA.

The directors are Jason Nodler and T Lavois Thiebaud. The actors are Raymond Compton, Bryan Kaplún, Ruben Ramires, T Lavois Thiebaud, Chuck Vaughn, Abraham Zeus Zapata and Walt Zipprian.

"Kane’s work continues to be performed extensively throughout the world and she has developed a cult-like following in many Western countries. Yet this production will mark only the fourth time her work has been seen in Houston. The first was Infernal Bridegroom’s Phaedra’s Love, also under Nodler’s direction, followed by Catastrophic Theatre’s Crave in 2011 and 4.48 Psychosis (2021)".

Sarah Kane’s Theatre of Psychic Life

Sarah Kane’s Theatre of Psychic Life: Theatre, Thought and Mental Suffering by Leah Sidi was published on 6 Apr 2023, published by Bloomsbury. 

"Drawing on performance theory, psychoanalysis and neuroscience, this book argues that Kane's innovations generate a 'dramaturgy of psychic life', which re-shapes the encounter between stage and audience. It uses previously unseen archival material and contemporary productions to uncover the mechanics of this innovative theatre practice.

Through a radically open-ended approach to dramaturgy, Kane's works offer urgent insights into mental suffering that take us beyond traditional discourses of empathy and mental health and into a profound rethinking of theatre as a mode of thought. As such, her theatre can help us to understand debates about mental suffering today".
