Abstract

Montage principles applied to content, aesthetics and collaboration in cinematic storytelling. Two researchers sharing all cinematic practices, aiming to tell multifaceted, non-exploitive stories of womb-related states of life and death rarely depicted in cinema, while inviting active audience co-creation. Scenes are written as components of story threads with no predetermined order; staged and shot as written, then cut up and mixed, storylines intersected. The material is edited and reedited into different films in a variety of formats for screen and stage.

An exploration of conditions for improvisation, multiple perspectives, unpredictability and fluidity of form.
