The contemporary dance and music piece is inspired by Brian Keenan’s An Evil Cradling, a memoir of his four and a half years in captivity as a hostage in Lebanon.
Without Warning brings together light, sound and movement exploring the anguish of what it is to be relegated to the status of ‘meat’ and how both the mind and spirit can still find ways to claw back reality and meaning.
Voice, strings and percussion become a conduit for rage and resistance, playing out the erratic states of euphoria, ridiculousness, compassion and uncertainty.
Accompanying the performance is Darkroom by Peter Anderson, an exhibition of black and white photographs of the Without Warning cast in rehearsal. A staff photographer for NME in the 1980s, Peter is known for his striking portraits of musical icons including Madonna and Mick Jagger.
