These Things Aren’t Mine by Gabbie Cook & Quiet Eye

“Hello? Is somebody there?”

Ash is a circus artist living a quiet and content life in Valencia, when one day a mundane encounter triggers a series of increasingly unnerving events.

As more and more cracks begin to appear in everyday life, and the line between reality and dream erodes, she is left with a choice – to run, or turn and dive deeper into discovering the cause. A fictional story based on real events, These Things Aren’t Mine is a dynamic visual journey through the body, mind and time – a story of discovery, acceptance and hope.

Written in collaboration with former gymnast turned circus artist Gabbie Cook, These Things Aren’t Mine is a visceral, abstract and emotive exploration into the psyche of an ex-child athlete living with PTSD and hyper vigilance.

Directed by Barney White, These Things Aren’t Mine is a performance film combining physical theatre, circus and dance.
