American expat, Memorial University professor, well known in Newfoundland as “the Whale Man”, Dr. Jon Lien pioneered techniques to rescue whales entrapped in fishing nets. Often risking his life in the water with the formidable and frightened animals, his efforts saved the lives of over 500 whales. Despite his dangerous work, Lien’s biggest fight came at the hands of a lengthy illness that caused his body to be slowly conquered by immobility and dementia. With an inspiring musical soundscape composed by Newfoundland’s folk trio, The Once, and performed live, Between Breaths is heart-wrenching yet beautiful and celebratory. A true theatrical tour-de-force.
