Performance

SAFE

Presentation

In Todd Haynes’ film Safe (1995), a woman suffers from increasingly intense allergic reactions that ultimately make her life almost unliveable. It is unclear whether she is a victim or an attention-seeking manipulator. As both a concert and a performance, SAFE starts from the film to sketch an image of contemporary hypersensitivity: join Julie Pfleiderer and the Ictus ensemble on an immersive journey that will stimulate all your senses. What starts as a concert gradually evolves into a sophisticated live audio play. The contemporary Western world wants to find explanations for everything. But what can we do about phenomena, fields, and blind spots to which we cannot provided definitive answers?
