Dying Matters: A participatory performance

11 May 2023 14:30 - 16:30

When is a right time for us to think about our preferences for end of life care and talk about our wishes?

How important is it for us to relay this information to others, especially those who are closest to us? And vice versa, how much do we know about their preferences and wishes?

Talking about and planning for death may feel daunting and uncomfortable but what happens when this information is not made known to others particularly at moments when they need to act on your behalf?

This interactive performance explores the complexities and consequences arising from some of our struggles to talk openly about death and engages the audiences to consider the importance of such exchanges.

“A moving, engaging and thought-provoking hour” - Audience

“How important it is to share these sorts of experiences, to talk about dying death and bereavement, and that this talk can be done in a variety of ways” - Audience

The performance is a collaboration with between Michael Tan (Lab4Living), Ashley Barnes (SHU Theatre), and SHU Theatre students: Chris Ellis, Rachel Leung, Ben Unsworth, Connie Fiddament, and Holly Dixon.

This event is one of a series of free community events running throughout May, enabled by Compassionate Sheffield, to help explore why dying matters.
