As old age approaches and separation by death looms near, a married couple take their own lives. It is those left behind who have to endure the consequences and as the years pass their son questions whether his love can match the intensity of their passion. Exploring the fickleness of memory it blends contemporary dance with a poignant narrative on ageing, love and loss.

★★★★

"This exquisite miniature unfolds on stage like a film and yet is intensely alive even as it deals in the currency of death. It is entirely itself in its urge to find a new, expressive language."  The Guardian

"...absorbing... [Carrie Cracknell] creates a geometry that's rich but uncluttered"

The Independent
