Fool Asleep

McKenzie, Vahri (2012). Fool Asleep play script, Fringe World Festival 2012. Perth, Australia: The Treasury.

A one-act play that used spoken text with original video and dance to present the complex relationship between a subject of a sleeping disorder and an examining sleep scientist. The script, based on lay and scientific sleep science texts, reframed scientific discourse and so questioned the assumptions that have rapidly created a new medical speciality.

Part of a body of work investigating the pathologisation of sleep through performance research.
