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.

David Rosenberg is a founder member of Shunt, whose work includes Dance Bear Dance, Tropicana and Amato Saltone.
