The Future of Death /part 5 (performance)
London based A2 Company, the collaboration between artists Anton Mirto and Alit Kreiz, began research for this sensitive piece working with the terminally ill in palliative care, seeking to discover the changes of heart made on the verge of death, and how this knowledge might be put into practice. Out of this research came an evolving performance installation, The Future of Death, in which local residents gradually bury each other with earth, following a two-week workshop with the company exploring the inter-relationship between living and dying.
Each instalment is unique and reflective of the time, place and personalities of the people involved. The performance will take place in Lancaster’s stunningly refurbished Storey Gallery.
We are seeking local participants from all ages and backgrounds to take part. Contact Alice Booth (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
