ZERRISS
One word, crushed into pieces, where the mere shadows of its syllables is all that is left. ZERRISS derives its title from the German word ‘zerrissenheit’, meaning fragmentation, brokenness or disunity, and the piece investigates a yearning for something separated to once more becoming unified.
