'In Between Silence -where we really exist' is a collection of intimate personal stories by diverse participants, including many leading Irish writers. It is presented in a unique film format devised by groundbreaking Irish artist Stano. 
The project made its North American debut in December 2016, in the off-Broadway Barrow Street Theatre, New York. 
'In Between Silence -where we really exist' is a project which is the first of its kind. Many would go so far as to say that it is a new genre. Irish poet, Theo Dorgan, describes it as "a total experience ... a multidimensional world in sound ... the way the soundscape travels you into the story, is really quite uncanny". 
The stories are told by some of Ireland's finest writers and artists, including Dermot Bolger, Anne Enright, Roddy Doyle, Paula Meehan, Joseph O'Connor and Robert Ballagh. 
Stano is a very strong force inside the artistic life of Ireland. 'In Between Silence' is an entirely Irish conception celebrating universal consciousness - the value of people's ordinary thoughts - in a communal and universally beguiling manner. 
Joining the FREE showcasing of the project will be Belfast's own Brian Keenan whose work includes the book 'An Evil Cradling', an account of the four and a half years he spent as a hostage in Beirut; and Mike Garry, former librarian turned poet whose writings include Men's Morning, Mancunian Meander and God is a Mane.
