Cast and Crew
Loosley set in a funeral home, this creative collaboration explore the grief experience from funny to poetic to painful by mixing performance and video projection.
Why we're in:
Because as a society we need to talk more openly about death and grief.
We love that this show is addressing this...
Also, this show has an excellent cast."
"Collectively, we carry an immense backlog of grief that has never been heard, simply because we have no story that helps us hear it. We need to tell new stories. We need new stories that tell the truth about pain, about love, about life. We need new stories of bravery in the face of what cannot be fixed. We need to do this for each other; we need to do this with each other because pain happens. Grief happens."
- Megan Devine, It's OK That You're Not OK
Here's the deal: if you haven't already experienced the loss of a loved one that has blasted a giant hole in your universe, you will.
It's undeniable that the people that we love will die and, of course, so will we.
Denying our own greif or the greif of others only creates suffering on top of the epic pain already experienced.
Visitation gathers different grief stories and expressions through a number of different voices to hit the core truth: there is no right or wrong way to grieve.
Will this show have all the answers?
No, absolutely not.
This show will open you up to some of the many ways that grief is experienced through humor, drama and moving images.
This show may be a companion, it may make you feel less alone or it may just open your eyes to the complexity of this difficult experience.
