The Birth of Death

by Joanne Tremarco

Saturday 19th May ~ 7:00pm – 8:30pm

Tickets: £8.50

Ever thought about death…? Let Joanne Tremarco – a spiritual fool – laugh and cry you over to the other side.

This solo piece (performed by Joanne Tremarco with direction from Yael Karavan) addresses ‘death’,the elephant in the ‘living’ room. Drawing on end of life conversations with her mother, training as a death doula and adventures as a Lucid Dreamer, Joanne invents a comic-tragic odyssey of the soul.

A show for the dead and dying** and those who care for them.

**Relevant to anyone who at some point will die.

Includes post show discussion.

BrumYODO is a community collective aiming to encourage and support the people of Birmingham to have open and honest conversations about death and dying and mortality. Through creative and cultural events, festivals, debates, workshops and social media, BrumYODO is opening up discussions and ending the taboos around death and dying.

The more we talk about a subject the less it becomes fearful. Talking to those we love about death and dying also helps us prepare, plan and ensure our friends and families know our choices and preferences.

BrumYODO is growing, attracting more interest and more members each year. Join us in May 2018 for our festival A Matter of Life and Death, taking place from the 10th-26th May in venues across Birmigham City Centre.
