Applied Silence's inaugural project, Screen Door chronicles two idiosyncratic ghost stories. In one, a woman receives a postcard originally delivered to her now-deceased father 36 years earlier. In the other, a man falls asleep at the movies and wakes to discover he’s been transformed in some manner beyond his reckoning.
These stories conjure the feeling of being haunted by some unresolved past, of repetition and doubling, of eternal return, of time folding in on itself.
The product of a creative partnership between playwright José Teodoro and composer-musician Stephen Lyons, shifting between modes that alternate between dreamy wonderment, bracing dissonance, and twilit suspense; Screen Door is a post-rock tandem narrative immersing audiences in an intimate, uncanny, darkly humorous journey that speaks to the strangeness of navigating our labyrinthine modern world in which memory, ardour, myth, family, magic and loss coalesce.
Written and directed by José Teodoro
Musical direction and thematic composition by Stephen Lyons
