"...this digital version has such an intensity of focus, allowing you so directly inside the woman’s head... this is a piece with the impact of a stone dropped in a mill pond. It ripples and ripples"
Lyn Gardner, StageDoor

A short film about love, isolation and living with chronic pain.

In April 2020, a woman sits alone in her house.
She lives with constant pain. Pain so intense she can hear it and see it. Pain with no apparent cause.
Remembering a past relationship, she wonders if she can ever communicate how she experiences the world in a way that someone else will truly understand.

Where I Go (When I Can’t Be Where I Am) is a powerful and intimate insight into the isolation of living with a rare, synaesthetic chronic pain condition.

Adapted from and created by the team behind the multi award-winning, critically acclaimed theatre show The Shape of the Pain. Filmed in isolation.
