a durational dance film exploring grief.
"I'm constantly holding my breath.
Sometimes it's out of shock,
sometimes it's out of anticipation of what is to come,
sometimes it's because I'm concentrating too hard on the task at hand,
and sometimes I simply forget
to take my next inhale.
"I'm waiting for this breathing pattern
to happen naturally,
but its something my body and mind
have difficulty navigating
while my soul is currently so preoccupied.
"Sometimes I try to imagine
the smell of carbon and sulphur;
the thickness of the air
and the way it gets caught in my throat.
The graceful way the dust from the ground floats
with each step
or gust of wind.
Handling the unrecognizable remnants
still hot to the touch...
"But the whole thing exists
in an untouchable, unreachable
a surreal reality."
