Dark Interludes

a film by Michelle St Anne and Julie Vulcan

with The Living Room Theatre


Grief expands and contracts temporalities.

The breath in deliberately occupies space

The pause elongates the moment

The release amplifies a remembering

All to be repeated in a ritual of remembering, and remembering, and…


To be enveloped by the extraordinary senses that are opened by grief is to be present to the shared space of loss and lamentation that exists across time and species. By recognising the patterns of our own pain, beauty, and suffering we might begin to understand how we as humans might break the cycle of the forever unjust.
