The Birth of Death (FEAST Theatre Festival)
Imagine you have two bodies. One you move in every day and one you move in when you dream. Where does the dream body go after death?
This solo piece performed by Joanne Tremarco and directed by Yael Karavan addresses death, the elephant in the ‘living’ room by warmly weaving interactive improvisation with stunning physical imagery, set to an evocative score. Drawing on end-of-life conversations with her mother, training as a death doula and adventures as a Lucid Dreamer, we are taken on a tragicomic odyssey of the soul.
FEAST – the Festival of Equality in Arts and Society through Theatre – returns for 2021 to bring Malvern a packed programme of theatre, workshops, dance, talks and more, from 20 – 28 September. This year’s venues include Malvern Cube, The Coach House Theatre, Elmslie House, The Octagon Community Centre and The Theatre of Small Convenience, which will host performances that are compelling, meaningful, provocative and topical. The events are linked by a belief in the vital role theatre and the arts can play in promoting our wellbeing and growth as a community, fostering an understanding of differences that makes us stronger.
