Synopsis by Nathan Southern
As part two of The Brothers Quay's "Still Nacht" series, the 3-minute, black-and-white animated short Are We Still Married? constitutes an animated "ballet" of a stuffed white rabbit, a tattered female doll, and a ping-pong ball. The Quays choreograph and orchestrate the objects into a fluid symphony of movement, set to the haunting song of the title, as performed by the pop group His Name is Alive. The work loosely suggests thematic influence from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.
