HOLD / FALLING
HOLD / FALLING is a brand new collaboration between Created a Monster and artist Kyll Thomas Cole.
Originally a short film made in support of the black lives matter movement at the start of the first lockdown - HOLD /
FALLING is about Kill, a young man who wakes up in Dead Yard and passes through the nine nights when his soul is allowed to roam, stay at home or wander to exact revenge on those that have mistreated him before passing on.
The piece takes as its starting point the internal life and struggle of a young black man growing up and trying to maintain mental stability in a council estate in South London, an inherently racist yet highly mobile world.
His struggles from the past, his worries about the future and his questions about his present are played out in the space of Dead Yard.
New partners on the project include The Tramshed and Bloomsbury festival. The piece will be performed next at Bloomsbury Festival, October 17th 2021, tickets here.
