is a dance film that can be combined with performance that evokes a gothic world through the lens of the 21st Century. It features a charismatic cast caught in a moment of time; sensual, strange, unsettling and gender fluid it is inspired by two tales and a poem written by Edgar Allan Poe, and the visual art of Aubrey Beardsley.  Created in 2019 it is a gothic romance filled with ambiguity and both beautiful and unsettling. Three characters emerge from the dark and interact and we, the viewer are left with a sense of disquiet over half realised encounters and a possible murder. 

Director – Dora Frankel
