We’re All Mad Here invites the public to enter a liminal world of fantasy and illusion. A world where whats’its share their daily follies with the public. This work arises from the concern of intervening in a different space, a space where a simple decision has the power to transform, showing the daily madness that a person with double joints can suffer.
We’re All Mad Here plants a reality created by two heads wanting to control one body that throughout its journey metamorphs as it keeps arriving at a crossroads. Stemming from the pedagogy of classical corporeal mime and the work of Lewis Carroll this dark and ludicrous work demonstrates internal duality through movement-theatre and visual art.

Gráinne O Carroll started this work in 2015, exhibiting it in galleries, live-art spaces, lightmoves screen dance festival and NOW! A theatre festival in Dublin this September!
Gráinne, Lorenzo Massa and Melissa Haury are the principal performers, hailing from different corners of the world, they share the love of transmitting their impressions through physical theatre, dance and mime. The show will feature original music by Daniel Mac Dermott and songs performed live by Antonella Scanu. Stella Godmet, an actress and director based in Dublin and Galway, is in charge of the production and management.
