What happens when the dream you thought you were living falls apart, and you don’t recognise the person staring back at you in the mirror? How do you exist when it is too dark to see? 'D' is a physical exploration of one woman’s emotional journey through divorce.
Divorce is a loss, loss of a relationship, loss of dreams and hope for the future, loss of love. With loss comes the grieving process. According to Swiss psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, there are 5 stages to the grieving process: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. In 'D', this model was used to create 5 dances, exploring each stage of grief.
