I don't feel safe to tell you, 2018
I don't feel safe to tell you is the result of research into psychological and physical therapies, practices and programmes including: Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE), Non-Violent Communication (NVC), Systema, and Codependents Anonymous (CoDA).
Two performers enact a ritual of exercises designed to bring repressed trauma to the surface. Inspired by the radical self-analysis of self-help programmes, they set out to ‘make a searching and fearless moral inventory of themselves’ (CoDA, Step Four).
Premiered at Haus N, Athens. With Jeremy Nedd.
