The Echoes of Willard is a newly devised theatre performance based on suitcases discovered in an attic of a deserted building at Willard just outside of New York. Over 400 were found, each containing the possessions, photos and letters of patients of a recently shut down psychiatric hospital: WILLARD PSYCHIATRIC CENTER. This performance takes 5 of those suitcases and their contents and uses live performance to bring the patients alive again by sharing a personal interpretation of their lives leading to being institutionalised and their lives at Willard for an audience that never got the chance to meet them. The theatrical form of the piece is physical theatre/storytelling
