Taking its title from a line in an e.e. cummings poem, this piece addresses intimacy and power dynamics in relationships. This dual performance on the stage and screen highlights unseen forces and the role they play in defining a relationship.  This work was also developed into a short film and chosen to be screened at various film festivals in the United States.
