LOUD! BRIGHT! EXPLOSIVE! Common dangers against which protocols protect us. On the threshold of risk and regulation we look for creative experience. In this participative music theatre performance you will learn to protect yourself from real and imagined aggressors. Can we take control of our fears by taking control of our perceptions? Safety first or last, don’t shout FIRE in the theater.
Playing the apparatus of the theatre like an instrument, we create a theatrical experience that engages the audience to manipulate their senses. Will you opt-out or opt-in?
“How to Defend Yourself from Danger” was produced during a residency at the Veenfabriek in Leiden in the Summer of 2017 in a collaboration between sound artists (iii) and theatre makers (OKAPI).
Special thanks to Paul Koek, Michael van Hoogenhuyze and Mike Rijnierse for their support and advice.
