I Put a Spell on You is a performance about external inhibitions that juxtaposes the notion of one’s own self with totalitarian authority.
Three individuals are stuck in a space where the presence of a highest observer is inevitable. Their fragile bodies have lost all notion of privacy and are in a constant state of self-discipline. Although they cannot have contact or say what they want, together they seek a solution to the situation.
