      EVENT DETAILS
      Between Breaths

      Between Breaths is based on the life of Dr. Jon Lien — known in Newfoundland as “the Whale Man” — who pioneered techniques for rescuing whales trapped in fishing nets. Moving backward in time, from Lien’s final moments to his first whale intervention, this poignant story depicts Lien’s rescue efforts, which saved over 500 animals, and his own struggle with relentless paralysis and dementia. From Newfoundland’s Artistic Fraud (Oil and Water, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams), Between Breaths considers what we hold onto when everything else is gone.

      "Known for their innovative storytelling, Artistic Fraud creates another hauntingly evocative tale — complete with musicians and storytellers. Gentle, inspiring, and fresh — an intimate story unfolds in a completely surprising way." – Dennis Garnhum, Artistic DirectorEXPAND YOUR EXPERIENCE
