Give Me the Key is a performance of psychotic demands and emotions caused by Alzheimer’s disease. Inspired by Carl Dreyer’s “The Passion of Joan of Arc” (1928), Give Me the Key is a powerful and disturbing statement on family relationships and responsibility, where art and the everyday inevitably collide.
