A yellow-and-black police line bisected a large storagelike room at Station Beirut, separating performers from audience.Once the audience was seated, Yara Bou Nassar and Annalena Froehlich entered, dressed in white pants, long-sleeve white tops-cum-straitjackets and white socks.Bou Nassar told The Daily Star her performance practice is intensely personal.Midway through the performance, Bou Nassar approached the line of white tape on the floor and re-enacted a panic attack.When Bou Nassar's heavy breathing stops, Froehlich approaches with a deadpan look and asks her to do it again so she could record it once, twice, three times.Ultimately, Bou Nassar and Froehlich detached the black-and-yellow police line.It was a gestural lifting of the curtains, welcoming the audience to a visually magnetic performance.
