A performance piece about writing, memory, and loss — based on the last recorded conversation between a mother and daughter.

Locked in a Way is a collaboration between filmmaker Matthew Hayes and dance artist Victoria Mohr-Blakeney. This short film explores the confining and isolating landscape of grief. It features the last recorded conversation between Victoria and her mother Renate Mohr, as they speak about a creative collaboration they are not able to finish before Renate’s death. Locked in a Way offers a brief intimate space wherein a mother’s voice and a daughter’s body connect across time, space, and even death.
