In our everyday lives we often dance on a knife-edge. Carl Knif's solo RED is an intimate portrait of an individual struggling with an inner red alert. 

The performance is about extremes. You could call them emergencies of emotion. At times, it’s about life and death but mostly about life. This performance is a map. Knif has taken a red marker pen and pointed out moments in his life that have felt really meaningful, or the opposite, lost all their meaning. These moments are not always dramatic. Above all, the red colour symbolises willpower, authority and courage.
