Based on the writings and testimonies of people living with mental health issues, Lysis is a docudrama that traces the experiences of five individuals. This audio-visual installation is a forthright portrait of people side-lined by society through everyday stigma, prejudice and general ignorance toward mental health. Lysis journeys through psychosis and toward recovery, challenging for the right to be recognised beyond diagnoses. A celebration of the genuine strength of human character.
Facilitated & Directed by Declan Mallon

Audio Design: Carl Kennedy
Video Design: Kilian Waters & Dan Keane (Arcade Films)
Performed by: Grainne Rafferty, Anthony Kinahan, Leah Rossiter, Niall O’Brien, Sarah Hope Guppy, Anne Nolan.
