ABOUT THE WORK
(d)elusive minds is based on the true story of Santiago, a mental patient with Capgras Delusion, a type of Schizophrenia where the person becomes convinced that a family member has been replaced by an identical imposter. In a delusional fit, Santiago killed his wife, whom he deeply loved. For the following fifteen years he spent in prison, he wrote a letter to his wife every single day, convinced she was still alive. Today he is still looking for his wife. Inspired by this story and many other extraordinary stories, this work explores the line between reality and fiction, health and insanity, and the deceiving characteristics of appearances.
(d)elusive minds is an original Korzo production in collaboration with Nederlands Dans Theater that premiered in November 2014.
