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.
