SET is a site-specific work that delves into ideas of tension and seeks to trigger a sense of disorientation from within. A free fall into the unfamiliar, audience members sit anywhere in the 360 degree performance and multichannel video projection space. SET references cinematic genres of horror, sci-fi, and psychological thriller within each of its 8 episodes, tapping into the viewer’s fears of the unknown.
