“SAFE HERE” is a critics of European immigration politics and gaze towards immigrants from the Global South and East. The 5 days long (6 hours each day) live performance addresses how Europe victimises and fetishises the migrants in order to create “European dream” while building an image as safety and freedom provider of itself.
Starting from here, “SAFE HERE” engages with the act of breathing as a backbone of living, as a matter of life/death, as a reciprocation and connection within the one and others and attempts to reveal vulnerability and fragility of the body as well as manifesting its strength.
