Meet Alfred. His work is going well thank you, only two more months and she’ll be done. Her and Him. 9125 days. A pleasure, he says.

Like Rumours of Hushed Thunder’ is a theatrical movement consideration of the pressure that is placed upon the people that we regard as our emotional support. What happens when our pillar of strength, our ‘guardian angel’ becomes unstable? This work-in-progress looks at the demise of our backbone and the strength that is required to build it back up again.
