BOTH SIDES, NOW | Living Well, Leaving Well


Closer

We all know that death is part of life. Since it is a part of our existence, why avoid it? Why not try to learn more about it? Why not get closer? Come explore these questions with us in the following programmes, as we wrap up our time in Chong Pang.


Participatory Performance Last Dance

100 days after a man's death, his family, friends and even strangers, gather to remember the life he lived. A son seeks closure through his mother's experience with loss, grief, dying and living. A wife asks questions about death, life and memory.

We live as long as our memories are kept alive by those who know us. Who do you still remember? How would you like to be remembered? How can we help each other remember? Through dance, shared stories, and open conversations, we get closer to understanding the legacies we want to leave behind, for our loved ones and for ourselves.
