What does loneliness look like to you?

As a choreographer, I asked my friends and colleagues to describe what loneliness feels like- especially in regards to the past year. The responses I received helped fuel the creation of this sad portrait of someone we can all relate to at some point or another.

The responses:
‘dinner for one’
‘standing in a room full of people screaming and no one looks to you’
‘searching for the present moment’
‘quite comfort, sometimes melancholy, sometimes magic’
’emptiness inside, no organs: just blackness’
‘silence and heaviness on your heart that you just can’t seem to release’
‘what nothing sounds like’
‘in a room full of people and no one notices you are bleeding’
