พูดง่ายๆ: มีความรู้สึก

Dujdao Vadhanapakorn Boonyai's (In)sensitivity brings to the fore with great subtlety and sustain both the active and passive dispassion that thwarts our inability to embrace our true selves (and each other, personally, societally and politically) – in theatre and in almost (group) therapy.

From a series of bold, visceral, highly psychologically-charged set pieces that crescendo with a litany of defiant responses and on into a tense standoff – an interface of potential mutual harm – and finally, gently, trust, the audience are pulled backwards (literally) and then centre stage (emotionally) and invited 'in' to drop their guard and grasp all.

This is truly powerful stuff and may not just be the best show in town, but arguably some of the best therapy around.
