panic around death acts as a meditation on illness, death, and the body, specifically through the lens of incurable disease. One’s body becomes an unconsenting host for such diseases, and the individual acquires both a panic and a peace around the idea of death. Existing somewhere between concert music, installative art, and non-narrative theater, panic around death does not pose any questions or provide any answers. Rather, it aims to construct a space that is informed by and reverent of illness while offering itself as an area of comfort and protection.
