Occupational Hazard (2020)

Images - Alison Grace

Occupational Hazard is a work in progress which attempts to examine those innocuous behaviours which are perhaps not so innocent. Easily escalating into something else; something unexpected, unwelcome and difficult to overcome.

Stemming from explorations into consent, sexual fantasies and objectification, Occupational Hazard is a journey that walks the fine line between suggestive and unsolicited. In the midst of the current feminist effervescence, thanks to movements such as #metoo, Occupational Hazard focuses on non verbal language - the way we sometimes use it and the interpretations that it can awaken.

A digital version of Occupational Hazard was recently selected for Flock Fest 2020. 

Approximate running time - 15 minutes

Performed and Devised by Anna Cabré & Charlotte Arnold
