With the work of Fernand Deligny and Jean Oury as a starting point, the radio play is an exploration of radical communities that question the common boundary practices of psychiatrists towards their patients:


self-administrated, experimental communities between patients and doctors, children with autism, artists and poets in the French mountainside, experimental psychiatries run by the patients themselves alongside philosophers and dancers.

Taking the influence of the “anti-psychiatry movement” on different radical artistic communities in Europe into account, the project seeks to retrace wanderings of a marginalized and alienated soul towards solidary and non-stigmatizing forms of community.

This collaborative approach reflects an ethical and theoretical commitment to knowledge as something that emerges from ongoing, collective exchange and not from the supposedly autonomous and distant minds of great scientists or thinkers.
