The Birth of Death by Joanne Tremarco

19/05/2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


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.
