Psycho siren Leah Shelton straps on the straightjacket and dredges through history in an attempt to understand why, and how, uncomfortable ideas are suppressed under the banner of mental illness.
Shelton’s trademark physicality, dark wit and surreal design aesthetic meets Ursula Martinez’ sharp, insightful directorial style in their second collaboration; supported by the masterful cult-sampled soundscapes of Kenneth Lyons and genius collaborators Lisa Fa’alafi and Daniel Evans.
BATSHIT pits the rational, sane truth against fanciful, hormone-inflicted and embellished tales to bring YOU the facts about this f*cked-up world we live in.
