mourning hours
short dance film
6:35minutes 16mm + 35mm

mourning hours I wake from dreaming, it is dawn
the light nudges me away from my memories
a time of half dreaming and half waking
dawn, this time of day is the hardest
mourning hours
mourning hours blue is the colour of grief
absorbing. inescapable. vast.
a colour to drown in
mourning hours tears are the material of loss
smothering exhausting soaking distorting
mourning hours I wake up in a pool of tears
in a blue bed of memories
photographs from video stills
mourning hours film coming soon






created in 2000 with help for the Australia Council's Dance Fund
