Original dance/theater piece about anxiety, fear, self-help, and that bad Jodie Foster movie.

The Panic Show

2010 Le Quartz, Anticodes Festival, Brest, France
2009 Dance New Amsterdam, NY / Bumbershoot Festival, Seattle, WA

Witness Relocation, the physically intrepid company led by the misleadingly named Dan Safer, stages incapacitating fear and mass hysteria in The Panic Show.
— The New Yorker
Mr. Safer is a smart, playful artist, and his best works marry a muscular physicality with absurdly heightened theatrical situations. Here, his cast is terrified of everything: social encounters, escalators, Jodie Foster (who had her own “Panic Room,” a 2002 movie). As they detailed their woes, offering one another scant comfort, Mr. Safer interjected bursts of rough-and-tumble partnering, noises and lighting shifts.
— The New York Times
Dan Safer/Witness Relocation’s The Panic Show at DNA was delightfully spot-on dance theater exploring anxiety, and hilarious to boot.

This is cutting-edge stuff. But it’s blessedly user-friendly.
