Two groundbreaking theater companies—Skid Row performance group Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD) and Netherlands-based collective Wunderbaum—confront the realities of contemporary healthcare in a raucous and engrossing “ficto-mentary” of love, life, money and death. The performance ‘Hospital’ draws on the clichés of serialized medical dramas, as well as real-life encounters with patients, doctors, healthcare professionals and reformers in both the U.S. and the Netherlands. ‘Hospital’ shrewdly sends-up a genre creating an hallucinatory exposé of free market healthcare and seeking alternatives for its future.
‘Hospital’ will be performed on the following dates:
January 9-10, at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis
January 17-18, at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, Darmouth
