aside from the subject matter, which is honestly delivered by an astounding performance from Catherine Samie, the presentation was simple in theatrics and a wonderful compliment. bold in lightingwhich acts as the major transition element between sorrowful and exhausting bouts the addition of haunting spectres mimicking her moves are her only accompaniment. they are her shadows and her strength/will/soul/ slowly being consumed by the foreboding darkness.
technique and content beautifully married.
La Dernière letter gripped me immediately in it's presentation stripped to nothing other than Catherine Samie apparently frail and pleading; desperate and somehow able to muster strength to tell her son of what little joy and perseverance she has experienced. flipping through the channels at 12.30am and discovering this gem to shamelessly steal a catch-phrase: priceless.
