About the show
An ambulance appears in the middle of the night, carting off a woman who claims she is healthy. Her husband sets off on a surreal odyssey through a vast hospital. Epona’s Labyrinth follows his descent into a Kafkaesque network of constant surveillance, sexual deviance, addictions and delusion.
The South Wing teams up with Japanese multimedia collective, Nibroll to mount this erotic, original play. A nightmarish vision of modern medicine and life unravels through stark, neo-expressionist staging and striking video design.
