Wunderbaum and LAPD

Skid Row performance group Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD) and Dutch collective Wunderbaum examine the realities of contemporary healthcare in this “ficto-mentary” of love, life, money, and death. Hospital draws on the clichés of serialized medical dramas as well as real-life encounters with patients, doctors, healthcare professionals, and reformers in both the United States and the Netherlands. With intelligence, compassion, and absorbing stagecraft, the piece shrewdly sends up a genre while its cast creates a hallucinatory exposé of free-market healthcare.
