Part Alice in Wonderland, part Requiem For a Dream, part Rocky Horror Picture Show, 
The Sandwich is a transformative journey through a mindscape of altered states.

The Sandwich is inspired by Albert Hoffman’s discovery of LSD. In 1943, the Swiss chemist absorbed a small quantity of an unknown substance through his fingertips while attempting to re-synthesize the molecule ergot, a fungus that grows on diseased rye. 

Hoffman’s hallucinatory self-experimentations would go on to radically change how people experience the world. 

With generous support from the Winnipeg and Manitoba Arts Councils.
