About This Show

“I was a bunch of O’s as if I was giving birth to this grief”

Though we sense the moods of those closest to us in breaths, are we really listening?

We think we are, and later we realise that we never heard a thing.

Centering on the loss of a beloved matriarch, and breathe… explores family relationships, bonding and culture. This deeply personal and poetic play tackles the unspoken, between what we leave unsaid to protect each other and how we internalise the world.
