Synopsis

While writing an adaptation of the play “4.48 Psychosis”, by English playwright Sarah Kane, Luísa (Ingrid Trigueiro) travels to a deserted beach with her family. Immersed in the text, Luísa finds the work’s impulses increasingly immersed into her own reality, driving her to the threshold of adaptation and delirium. Between theater, sketch, archival images, and complex memories and family relationships, Arthur Lins uses different staging references to compose a small tropical tale about a complex creation process. (G. B.)
