Stefanie Sourial is a universalist. In her solo, she interweaves body, voice, lights, sound and text into an artistic freak show that walks the fine line between thrills and chills, insanity and self-control, proper manners and random violence: lights on for Valerie IX, who has suffered all her life from unbearable loathing for and aggression towards other people. The audience are compelled to gradually assume the role of therapists, while an absurd story of trauma unfolds before them that despite introspection continues to run rampant and threatens to spiral out of control.
