Trigger Warning is a solo work that offers insight into the dark heart of contemporary life for women who suffer violence, both outside & within Australia’s borders.
Trigger Warning is a verbal and sonic study recollecting deeply traumatic events. The script is inspired by the testimony of a refugee and survivor of the Balkan War, and by the voices of other women survivors of war zones.
Trigger Warning contains demanding subject material, using symbolic and sensory languages to take the audience on a journey reflecting sharply on potent current debates.
This work is timely, as violence, racism and intolerance proliferates in our society, notably towards women and refugees. It offers audiences different pathways to consider these urgent issues.
Trigger Warning is a fearless study that explores trauma and its lasting effects. We travel into the mind and body of a woman who has survived the horrors of war. She tells a story that demands to be heard.
