When the world doesn’t want us or isn’t enough, we make our own worlds.  

In an outdoor handball alley in the Irish countryside – amongst rubbish and debris – a young woman, Grace, is living alone.  

Through song, music, recorded voice, and film, we’re outside looking at Grace and then inside her fractured thoughts – trying to make some sense of it all. Her past arrives broken and chopped up. The present skips forward and days flip into night, seasons jarring into one another.  

SAFE HOUSE is a song cycle, a gig, a smashed-up memory play played out in a handball alley.
