Uncomfortable Silences is a voyeuristic glimpse into an intimate dinner for two.
A table is set for dining. The audience is invited to take a seat and enjoy the meal. A projection overhead plays out the dining ritual, glasses of wine are poured, the food is served … the conversation never begins …
Like a private telephone call overheard, the audience through headphones, can listen in to the couple’s inner most thoughts, things they feel they cannot say …. Is this the start of something special or a last supper.
