I’m coming back, love,
Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream,
My only master.
Too long I roamed in the night.
I’m coming back to his side, to put it right.
Kate Bush, Wuthering Heights
The love story of the century told by the children left behind. Wuthering Heights filtered through a kaleidoscope of 1980s excess and remixed in the decade of decadence. A visceral and visual piece of extreme storytelling featuring live video, big hair, rock ballads, and dancing.
A story everybody thinks they know reimagined for our time.
