Abstract/Summary

Access All Areas is a theatre company working with people with learning disabilities. The company are currently working on Madhouse Re:Exit; an immersive reclaiming of old long stay hospitals. Madhouse My House? is the extensive creative learning and engagement component of the larger Madhouse project. It seeks to ask, what was institutionalisation like in 20th century long stay hospitals? It aims to provoke participants to assess what confinement and institutionalisation looks like currently. We have been commissioned to create an exhibition/installation of sensory objects to enhance the learning of life inside St Lawrence’s hospital from 1950’s.
