A Guide on Loving
Make a constellation of imperfections.
A theatrical re-telling of These Snakes and A Guide on Loving Him, two flash fiction pieces from Pulling Weeds, a collection by T.A. Stanley that seeks to address the violences and violations that one absorbs as a woman, the ways in which these experiences live in the body and mind, and how one attempts to move through and heal after trauma.
The visceral imagery and content within these stories inspired this collaboration between cellist, James T. Stanley, sound designer, Shannon Pollack, and director of photography, Blake Horn.
