Turtle Key Arts and Courtyard Hereford present Open Sky Theatre’s feature-length film, COLD - a dark fairy tale about love, grief, madness and redemption.

From an antenatal hospital appointment a couple find themselves mysteriously transported to a stark, frozen forest. Lost, cold and hunted by a terrifying beast, they must save themselves and their unborn child. So begins a struggle for survival involving hostile elements, malign magical forces and a truly terrible choice.

COLD was created by acclaimed, Lecoq-trained physical theatre maker Claire Coaché and her husband, the award-winning playwright and film-maker Lisle Turner. It is based on their own experiences of baby loss and first person testimony from other grieving parents.

The project was conceived and rehearsed as a physical theatre piece but then, in response to lockdown, shot as a film on the main stage of Courtyard Hereford.

There will be a free live online symposium featuring Claire and Lisle and experts within the field of baby loss and miscarriage. All are welcome to attend.

Contains images of baby loss and miscarriage.

"In the performances of Etuk and Meadows, there is little opportunity to hide.

Janet Etuk and Jacob Meadows, as Falda and Ulf, rip the heart out of their pain, their bodies tightly wound."

“Theatrically ingenious, bold and arresting, and unflinchingly addresses what might be the most defining and universal of all human experiences - loss”

Gareth McLean, Journalist (Guardian, Radio Times)
