ZELLE / Wenn es Dunkel Wird 

CELL / When Darkness Falls

Premiere in October 2021

It is winter. A woman is found alone in a small hut high up in the mountains. She is suspected of having killed her children. The interrogator questions the woman and in doing so, receives no answers, leading her instead to reflect on her own state of mind. As time passes, the fog thickens and clarity dissipates as it becomes harder and harder to find what was never lost.

A mind in a body in a room in a story in a mind in a body in the world. One by one, the layers fall away in a ritual of unravelling and we are immersed in darkness, in light, in sky, as we follow the transformative power of letting go of the need for answers to our questions.
