Contains Violence archiveBehind each lit window there will be some tragedies. Most of these we claim no responsibility for, but there are two windows we should not ignore. Contains Violence is a contemporary Hitchcock-style thriller where events unfold in windows on the Hammersmith skyline, seen and heard from the Lyric terrace. This unique site-specific performance uses breakthrough audio-technology, through which audience members hear each whisper, secret and threat just as clearly as if they were in the same room. Part mystery, part peepshow, Contains Violence is a dark and surreal snapshot of the secret lives of others. Not recommended for anyone under 18
