Delicate

Delicate plundered the dark underbelly of human need and desire. It followed the curve of 1 night, where 6 characters reached out for a cure to their loneliness, dissatisfaction and need.

Delicate explored what holds us together and what tears us apart. As the night progressed, the temperature rose, partners changed, and changed again – looking for satisfaction and an escape from themselves.

Twisted bed sheets bore witness to the raging struggles of love-locked partners and the mini bar fed the sad reflections of the lonely motel.

Cutting, powerful text and fabulous imagery combined to shatter the brittle truths of being alone together.
