a piece about death by and with Christiane Stauffer
Nobody gets out of here alive. But nobody wants to hear that. We're very adept at not listening.
This piece is about listening and watching as the stage is set for death in various scenes. With humor, poetry or with exuberant pragmatism.
For example, there is the cemetery attendant, who has a solution for everything: Be it the aisles at the funeral or the provision of the perfect grave.
Or the clinic clown who knows exactly what stays and what doesn't and gives tips for a happy death.
Or the dancer who engages in a tango with death.
In scenes that are both touching and funny, Christiane Stauffer tells of how we deal with and don't deal with death.
