The Metropolitan Police call him a Domestic Extremist. The NHS have described him as 'highly disturbed' and labelled him with Borderline Personality Disorder. 'A real and present threat to the safe running of our lawful business' is how E.ON described him at the Royal Courts of Justice.
He prefers the term Mental.
After 15 years of being an outlaw and inpatient, artist activist 'the vacuum cleaner' presents an autobiographical performance told through his psychiatric records, police intelligence files and corporate injunctions collected through the Data Protection Act.
Trigger warning: Mental contains detailed description of self harm, suicide, police violence and disco music.
