A bed grows into a tree and breaks through the walls of a house. Its branches sprout children's clothes, the memory of something lost but not forgotten. "Next to Normal" is a reconsideration of the definition of sanity and an argument for the validity of a subjective truth. An all femme team collaborated on the physicalization of this feminine narrative.
