 An Immersive Site-Specific Performance

Asylum is loosely based on 10 Days in a Madhouse (1887) by Nellie Bly, The Yellow Wallpaper (1892) by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and other historical texts about women and madness explored through movement, multimedia imagery, and text.


Directors: Rachel Bowditch and Eileen Standley
