“EXIT” deals with an ever-present but mostly overlooked aspect of western theatre buildings: the emergency exit signs.
Like many theatre artists, Antonia Baehr has also made constant efforts to fight against these signs which make a real blackout impossible. In this lecture performance, however, she makes them the stars. EXIT takes us into a world between light and dark, in which the green light makes us think about the supposedly fixed oppositions of "inside" and "outside", "safety" and "danger" or "body" and "image". It is a magical journey through the things that theatre tries to ignore and the western image of humans it has helped to create.
