A video diary of the play adaptation of Le Malade Imaginaire, a three-act comedy-ballet by the French playwright Molière, titled Les Maladies Content Cher.
The performance is part of a four day workshop with artist Lucas Maassen where the social design masters students from the Design Academy Eindhoven designed and implemented various disabilities on their fellow students. The students then proceeded to: rewrite the script; design costumes and sets; promote the event and perform the play adaptation to an audience.
The students were not allowed to leave character until after the performance, eating, sleeping, drinking and breathing their problems with the success of the project relying on the students developing a strong group dynamic based on compassion and solidarity.
