Lysis definition:
(biology) the disintegration of a cell by rupture of the cell wall or membrane
(medical) the subsidence of one or more symptoms of an acute disease

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
Installation Design: Kieran McNulty
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.

Created by members of Shine, a mental health support group. The project premiered as part of Drogheda Arts Festival in May 2018. Presented as part of the First Fortnight Europe 2019 Festival Progamme.
