Etched is the result of an ongoing research collaboration between Andy Hurst (Canterbury Christ Church University) and Judi Vivas (University of Kent). The work tests the intersection between physical movement, projected dynamic light structures and generated sound, the result of which is a visually intriguing postdramatic experience. Without a narrative structure, the performance exists within a moment of expanded time as a young woman endures an horrific assault.

On 30th December 2012, Naomi Oni became a victim of an acid attack near her home in east London. Fourteen months later, her assailant, once a friend of Naomi, was jailed for twelve years. This event and the perceived increase in media coverage of similar attacks across the world, served as a catalyst for Etched.

The video documentation of this performance was made when Etched was performed as part of the Canterbury Sounds New Festival in May 2014
