A Home for Grief

A Home for Grief is an experience for one person at a time that begins with a sound walk through the streets of Lancaster. On your journey you will listen on headphones to the voices of local people from different backgrounds, sharing how they take care of their dead and themselves. The trail will lead you to a home. In this private space you will be guided through an intimate experience exploring care, memory, ritual and grief.  Entering alone, your presence will contribute to a tender conversation on how we say goodbye.

This performance is the first step to creating a communal action that serves people of different backgrounds, searching for ways to share grief across boundaries and histories. We welcome anyone who wishes to attend with compassion and a loving heart. A Home for Grief is a subtle rebellion, with the hope of affecting change in the ways we relate to each other and giving weight to the knowledge that we all share an ultimate journey… from birth to death.
