Suite TOC nº6

Synopsis

What are the parameters that establish a healthy society? A concert, a show, a border space to shed light on a silent topic in our society: the symptoms of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). An approach to the periphery of official speeches against the hegemony of the prevailing glances.

About the show

With Suite TOC nº6 we want to talk about mental suffering. Mental suffering has always been present in our lives, but since recently we have begun to raise awareness about what it means to live with it.

We have first-hand experience because eleven years ago Clara was diagnosed with OCD. Eleven years is a long time of coexistance to not have already looked at its face. We are sisters, we work together, we have lived together for many years; in short, we share everyday life.

With Suite TOC we explore the stigma, we explore how to relativise this suffering, not making it invisible but understanding that we live in a sick society where it is very difficult not to get ill. We live in a society of consumerism and ferocious capitalism with deep inequalities that generate suffering that is very difficult to sustain individually.
