SAFE HOUSE, is a spectacular large-scale outdoor performance that explores the significance of home.
As night falls the mysterious house dramatically comes to life. A figure appears on the roof, climbs precariously onto the roof and begins to share the story of this house - a family moving in, a child playing, a teenager desperate to escape and an old lady who can't leave.
The audience is taken on a thought provoking, surreal and poetic journey as rooms, memories and characters are revealed. Using large-scale projections and aerial performance, the house dramatically transforms into a variety of breath taking visual backdrops.
METRO-BOULOT-DODO, known for their emotionally engaging narratives and haunting soundtracks collaborated with Draw and Code and Wired Aerial on SAFE HOUSE. SAFE HOUSE is produced by Event International.
