Courtney's Image Bank

Here are some images that came to mind for me after reading "Breathe."

Janus, the two-faced Roman god of beginnings, transitions, doorways, endings and time:

Stills from Sigur Ros tour documentary "Heima" (Icelandic for "At home"):

Paintings by René Magritte:

Something random I found along the way:

All of these relate in some way to the sense of isolation and internal tension I got out of the play. They also share a similar palate of cool, muted colors, though this was entirely unintentional.

I'm really into the color palette you inadvertently stumbled upon.

I'm also into you being drawn to Sigur Ros...sonically I feel like they're similar to the dark, overwhelming, epic-ness while maintaining a strange sense of calm, that exists int the play.

I hadn't heard of Janus before, but I looked him up--I liked the idea of him looking simultaneously into the past and into the future.

Sigur Ros how perfect! I agree with Skye - the color scheme that has emerged from this collection feels right at home with the script - a lack of color, to reference Death Cab for Cutie. It feels cold and washed out, like something once full of life has been drained. I also really love the picture through the window from "Heima". I wonder how often each one of the characters sees their own existence through window panes, and the repercussions for each person.
