THIS IS THE FUNERAL OF YOUR LIFE

This is the Funeral of your Life premiered in Project Arts Centre, Dublin, in November 2017.

It was co-presented by Project Arts Centre. 

I made this show as a response to my fathers death. I wanted to imagine what it was like for an audience to reflect on their lives and see their 'funeral' before them in real time. 

Leave behind the emails, the bills, the deadlines. The quest for recognition, fame and glory. 

We are here. Together. Now. 

Watch us facilitate your funeral in real time, in this live event featuring an actor, a dancer and a mezzo soprano. Find out who you really are.

No really. . .
You.
Right in front of you.
Like never before.
I mean we’re all dying anyway.
