Trigger Warning

Steamworks Arts | 19 & 20 August, 8pm

Part noise concert, part improvised performance, Trigger Warning is a fearless new sonic study into the mind and body of a woman who survived the horrors of war.

In a world defined by our obsession with security and terrorism, why do we turn a blind eye to the 65 million displaced people in the world who seek our protection?

Fuelled with unpredictability and raw energy, this live and loud encounter written and directed by Sally Richardson brings together renowned performer Hayley McElhinney (The Babadook, Sydney Theatre Company’s War of the Roses, Mother Courage and her Children) with composer and new music pioneer Dr Cat Hope, and Lighting Designer Joe Lui.

Trigger Warning is an experience that demands to be seen and heard.
