[saffron_test.] is a performance that takes place within the speculative space of an ethno-dysphoric laboratory. The scientist tests the properties of saffron, [aphrodisiac/ anti-depressant] by ingesting a saffron potion as she sings in perz-ish, resulting in a DIY escapist medicine that longs to diffuse terrorism[s] through acts of desire.
