STATE OF INSECURITY

State Of Insecurity is a music performance piece by Jessica Sligter, exploring the concept of 'care' in late liberalism. Its main character reminisces while playing with the remains of a dinner-party, while a second character delivers slivers of theoretical analyses, crooning against an austere landscape of electronics and modular synthesis.
