Vertigo (IMP)

Fans of classic cinema will remember the unsettling sense of disorientation and fear that Jimmy Stewart’s character felt when climbing the stairs of the bell tower in the Hitchcock masterpiece, Vertigo. Although the production Vertigo isn’t based on the Hitchcock film, the sensation of each movement reflects upon the elements of fear and trepidation one experiences when suffering from the dizziness associated with the balance disorder symptom. The world seems to be spinning out of control as the music plunges us deeper and deeper towards a point of no return, one that forces us to hold on for our lives as the music assaults our senses and disrupts our equilibrium.
