How would it be to drown, being smashed against rocks?
Who will get my stereo?
Will my brother be happy when I’m finally gone?

This ten-minute performance consists of the projection of a spoken film about a group of teenagers who go rafting and almost die.
I accompany this film on the cello.
Towards the end of the film, I sing and briefly address the audience, thereby bringing the story out of the wilderness and into the theater space.
