Mandy is 50 years old. She lives in York, has two children and four dogs. Mandy also has terminal lung cancer.
“Without even being conscious of it, we all, effectively, stop living like we’re supposed to live. Really. Y’know, you take for granted that there’s next summer, or there’s next year, or… you take it for granted that that time is yours…”
Winter. is a delicate portrait of Mandy King-Holmes, made by filmmakers Rachel Davies and Daniel Saul, when Mandy was in the last months of her life. She died in April 2016 from lung cancer. The film – created in widescreen triptych form – approaches the ways in which Mandy’s knowledge of time running out affects how she deals with the everyday, impacts upon her plans for the future and her reflection on her own history.
Winter. was premiered at Easter 2016 as part of Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring., Quarantine's extraordinary quartet of performance and film about our relationship with time. Quarantine is one of the UK’s leading contemporary theatre companies, with an international reputation for their experiments in everyday life.
This presentation of Winter. at Gilmorehill Centre is supported by University of Glasgow, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Glasgow School of Art.
Co-producing partners for Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. are Compass Festival, Contact, Dublin Theatre Festival, Göteborgs Dans & Teater Festival, HOME, In Between Time, Lancaster Arts, Northern Stage and SICK! Festival. Development of Winter. supported by National Theatre Wales.
