“When silence was abrupt” explores the physical embodiment of 2 souls at loss for words because of the tenseness of the unknown. The unknown intensifies their relationship and exposes their need of safety and their sense of belonging, playing with different personas. A recapitulation of the energy in motion of the written word from the silence of the soul.
