When the World Was Wide

A young woman's salute to life
Loss, addictions, love
Hold my hand
Everything is colder
In concrete we blend
Backs to the wind
Safer

What are your dreams made of little girl?

My pick of the evening...containing expansive visuals, great imagery and excellent performance choices by Staples...We depart into the interval but Staples remained with me and has remained since. It’s resonant work and I liked it very much indeed...
