A Theatre-Rites, Polka Theatre and Theater der Welt, Germany co-production 2005.

Hospitalworks was first created in London, when Theatre-Rites transformed a disused ward in the Mayday University Hospital, a working London hospital. Co-produced with Polka Theatre and Theater der Welt, Germany’s largest theatre festival, Hospitalworks was then recreated in an empty hospital ward in Stuttgart, Germany.

Audiences were guided through a series of rooms magically transformed by performance, object puppetry and installation. Drawing on children’s fascination with the game of doctors and nurses, this unique performance turned the hospital environment into a playful and enchanting place.

Hospitalworks was performed in London and Stuttgart in 2005.
