“Coupling” follows two artistic lovers, with past failed marriages, struggling to live together for the first time. Set amidst the violence and loneliness of New York City, it deals with issues of mental instability and past traumas. Created as a response to the social media saturated world we live in - where people perpetually present their best selves; “Coupling” reveals the things we would rather not see – body imperfections, drugs and medications, anger and raw emotion. What happens when the mask of the performer is dropped to reveal the true self below? It is based on the author’s own experiences. Below are excerpts and photos from the 103 page book.
