*Creation in progress

No Exit, a play by Jean-Paul Sartre, is the inspiration behind this new creation from Alexandra “Spicey” Landé, In-Ward. The famous but accurate quote "Hell is other people" highlights the complexity of human relationships; it challenges us and disturbs us. Our relationships with others are often a source of conflict; what happens when a group of individuals are forced to live together whether in a family context, school or even more dramatic, in prison or a psych ward? 

As a kind of forced coexistence, this type of experience, while banal and complex at the same time, presents a huge challenge and can create a feeling of deep isolation. Ghettoization, intersubjectivity, and dual consciousness can result from this dramatic circumstance throwing its players further in the depth of solitude.
