HYSTERIA or Fragments of an Analysis of an Obsessional Neurosis

4 Jul

A journey into the depths of the unconscious, this darkly comic tale explores trauma with a sprinkling of Surrealism. Sigmund Freud vs. Salvador Dalí – but, now, the Doctor is the patient. Will he melt?

After studying literature and acting in Milan, Jacopo began working with various Italian theatre professionals, culminating in assistant directing the revival and national tour of Medea directed by Luca Ronconi (Piccolo Teatro). He also has worked across Europe, exploring different styles and collaborating with luminaries such as Peter Stein. Previous writing and directing credits include: DesAlation, Glottogenesis of the Anatomically Modern Homo Sapiens, Icarus. A new Greek tragedy and Lob-stare. He also directed the short films Contemporary Etiquette and Fake Commercial: Virginity on sale. Mountview credits as director: Hysteria and Tiny Dynamite. As assistant director: Gypsy directed by Charlotte Westenra, Acting Showcase 2019 directed by Sally Ann Gritton, Harvest directed by Adam Welsh and Gravel Heart directed by Richard Vincent.

Guillaume is an actor and theatre-maker from Lambesc, France. His acting and directing experience spans four countries, with recent credits including Never Swim Alone (Moyse Hall), “Art” (Players’ Theatre), Owners (Tuesday Night Café Theatre), The Thrill of the Chaise (Montréal Fringe Festival) and No Exit (Festival d’Avignon). In London, Guillaume has worked for Improbable and Olivier-nominated immersive theatre company Les Enfants Terribles.
