Death at work – Pop Up Teatr & Baltic Circle – Finland & Russia

Death at Work is a stage performance mixing two distinct rituals: a funeral and a theatre piece. Its performers are individuals working with death, such as a gravedigger, a priest, a cantor and a funeral home worker. Instead of philosophical and religious speculations, the piece approaches death from the perspective of practicalities and routines. The topic of death has been handed over from everyday life to institutions and specialists. How does this distancing affect the economy, political decision-making and our everyday lives? What tools are we left with to face death? What could experts in death and dying teach us about death?
