High Tide

Pauline Payen

Wie können wir traumatische Ereignisse verarbeiten, ohne uns allzu schnell unter Druck setzen zu lassen, möglichst schnell wieder zu funktionieren?

A fear becomes a fact. Your figure begins to melt and concave, as sorrow emits your posture. You are overcome with indescribable feelings, rage, misery. The grief unapologetically tears the joy out of your existence. You realize then that the information delivered has the capability to destroy you.

There is something feral about grief. A subversive emotion that we have been trained to suppress. Can it be thrown out the window? What has left us lost, sunken, incomplete? We attempt to observe grief as a companion in our life, who appears on their own terms. How can we re-examine grief as a force of power? How does it inform our bodies and relationships to others?


HIGH TIDE questions high pressure, the processing of traumatic events and the possibility to greet rage with open arms. The beauty and strategy of letting things go, exquisitely reminding us that we are alive.
