During the pandemic we got used to death tolls. This year, British society stands still for 6 hours of funeral rituals broadcast on TV and livestreamed around the world. And every day people are still drowning in the Mediterranean and dying from wars, victims of hunger around the world.

Who do we mourn? Where? When and why?

For one year, the performance group dorisdean dealt with mourning rituals and tried to offer new rituals. In a multi-track installation, we show our attempts at mourning and saying goodbye.

On 31 October and 1 November 2022, people can visit the installation from 12 to 6pm in the theatre district.
On both evenings there will also be live performances with the members of dorisdean:
In a two-hour performance on 31/10/2022, we bid farewell to our work as a collective and our privileged time as a concept-funded group.
On 1 November 2022, there will be a three-hour funeral chant about people we have lost and the love of life. Guests can go in and out as they please.

How the grief comes and goes: so the audience* can decide for themselves when they want to watch or need a break.
dorisdean says thank you.
dorisdean says goodbye.
We celebrate the living and the dead.
We celebrate life and also the promotion of arts and culture in this country.
