The Pill explores the role of medicine and illness in the lives of people. This is a solo act by Ira Melkonyan, who researched, wrote and performs the piece. Through contemporary theatre, movement, play with objects and popularised scientific presentation the story unfolds an amalgam of autobiographical narratives, fantasies, and associations, all exploring a surreal desire for an instant cure to all possible illnesses.
