death is a contemporary dance and immersive experience about death and the acute, isolating grief often suffered by the living.
death aims to be a celebration, a conjuring, and a collective mourning for performers and audience alike. Following Remains (2017), Life (2018), and Memoria (2018), death is the continuation and culmination of Slender-White’s series on death, grief, and loss.
death‘s audiences will be limited to 40 people per night, and each evening will include a post-performance discussion. Audience members will move throughout the building over the duration of the performance. The performance is fully accessible. Please contact FACT/SF at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding any accessibility needs or concerns.
