PREVIEW FILM SCREENING OF COLD BY OPEN SKY AT COURTYARD THEATRE HEREFORD - THURSDAY 7TH OCTOBER 7:30PM
“Go and see COLD when it comes out. It's an extraordinary and powerful and important piece of work that moved me more than I'd have imagined.” - Julia Bueno, Psychotherapist & Author of ‘The Brink of Being’
Tickets are available to either watch the screening in the Courtyard cinema or be sent a link to watch it live on-line and a Zoom link for the post show symposium.
Following the screening of the film there will be a live symposium, and via Zoom, with members of the creative team and experts in the field of baby loss and miscarriage.
This dark fairy tale for adults begins with a couple attending an ante-natal hospital appointment before being mysteriously transported to a stark frozen forest. Lost in the woods, savaged by the cold and hunted by a terrifying beast they must save themselves and their unborn child. In their desperation they stumble upon an abandoned cabin. So begins a struggle for survival in which they must face the hostile elements, malign magical forces and a truly terrible choice.
Addressing themes of love, grief, madness and redemption COLD combines physical theatre with cutting edge filming techniques to create a uniquely dramatic audience experience. The project was filmed on the mainstage of Courtyard Hereford.
