Relationships aren’t easy, particularly long distances ones. Trying to maintain a sense of connection is a tough ask, for some, lack of contact works, for others not so much; it’s dependent on the circumstances of the couple. We also have our own take on what it means to ‘belong’, a human need intrinsically and extrinsically fulfilled, or perhaps not. A state some finally find peace with, for some, something they continually search for. This also feeding into how we perceive our ‘cultural identities’, a factor shaping our daily experiences and how we view the world. Qianqian Chen’s non-linear narrative Safety Net explores these facets of daily life, a complex narrative presenting a series of ideas, created by a US and UK based collective of artists. Qianqian discussed further about the show’s UK premiere.
