Proceed with Caution grapples with personal, social, and global security
and trust in the present day. A group of dancers explore security in a time
of global violence, the Trump presidency, police brutality, mass shootings,
and the #MeToo <https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/metoo> movement.

The piece is largely inspired by security specialist Bruce Schneier. He
writes: “Security is both a reality and a feeling and they’re not the same
thing…The foundation of security is trust, both personal trust and global
trust”. The piece begins to address these questions: How do humans build
trust in dance? How do we build trust with each other? How do we build
trust in the world at large? How do we address and assess our fears about
personal safety? How do our personal feelings of security intersect with
global security? How is our security affected by news media? How do we make
an impact on security through art and activism? How does the feeling and
reality of security change across different countries and cultures? Four
performers, three women and one man, take over The Iron Factory floor as
they explore different variations of trust. Alongside spoken and recorded
words, they tell stories through their bodies about their own real life
experiences of feeling safe, feeling scared, and being truly endangered.
Projected video throughout the piece helps tell the stories of security.
The work continues to evolve as it moves from the personal to the global,
addressing modern issues and how they affect our individual and collective
associations and understandings of safety within an increasingly turbulent
humanity. Proceed with Caution does not claim to have all the answers, but
it’s worth seeing because the work takes a brave step into exploring one of
today’s greatest challenges that everyone can relate to: security.

This project is supported in part with funding from Small But Mighty Arts,
donors at FringeArts Scratch Night, LaPeg Brasserie and sponsor, Figure53.
