‘If you couldn’t sleep I would tell you a story. I would tell you about rain. I would tell you about the knot that we had to undo. I would whisper in your ear, go to sleep, go to sleep. I would wash the shit from my hands and touch you. Why all this rain? Why so cold? What kind of love is this?’

Glasshouse is a ten minute dance theatre film conceived and performed by Charlotte Vincent and Forced Entertainment’s Richard Lowdon, made with filmmaker Robert Hardy.  Set in a small ‘glass’ house, and taking place from dusk until dawn, it is a hard-hitting duet about how actions speak louder than words.
