Asylum Arts presents a breath-taking new thriller examining hallucinations, neurodivergence, and the state of mental health care. What if you came up for air and the world you knew was gone? NHS therapist Luc is fine. Honest. Sheโ€™s definitely not overwhelmed by meeting Owen, a new client, definitely not freaked out by what sheโ€™s started seeing, definitely doesnโ€™t think her reality has been punctured and something else is leaking in. Surfacing uses creative captioning, haunting music and motion sensor technology to create responsive light and sound, evoking a very real and lived experience of disassociation.
