About Between Breaths
Inspired by the true story of Dr. Jon Lien – known as the Whale Man – Between Breaths is a profoundly emotional memory play that sails through Dr. Jon’s life and the dangerous work of saving whales trapped in fishing nets off Newfoundland’s coast. Often risking his very life in the water with the formidable and frightened animals, Dr. Jon would seek to earn their trust as much as the fishermen’s. He looked for the best way to free whales while doing as little damage to the fishing gear as possible. Over his long career, Dr. Jon saved over 500 whales and earned the respect of the island’s fishermen, but his biggest fight came at the end of his life as dementia progressively conquered his body and mind.
“…Forty tons of muscle, fat, and bone, launched like a rocket. A Breach. No one’s entirely sure of why they do it. I might be tempted to say it’s nothing if not joy…”
Featuring an evocative live score by Newfoundland’s Juno-nominated The Once, Between Breaths is a beautiful and poignant play about the parts of ourselves we hold on to after everything else is gone. Sponsored by CAA Atlantic and presented by Artistic Fraud of Newfoundland.
