“What is something on your bucket list? What makes for a good death? Why bother thinking about death in the first place?
Devised by interdisciplinary collective Duo plastiCITY, Being Mortal combines conversations, sensory-heightened experiences, soundscapes and improvised movement. Join dance artist Valerie Lim and musician Michellina Chan as they invite audiences to embrace mortality by (re)connecting with the physical body.
Honest, sensorial and deeply intimate, Being Mortal is a wonderfully alive work about death.
Being Mortal was developed under Practice Tuckshop Incubation 2021″
A year in the making, Being Mortal, felt like a very special baby of ours. We experienced openness, grief, joy in the many stories we shared and listened to from the public. For me, it was an out-of-my-comfort-zone process with the with incubation. I’m very thankful for my duo partner, Valerie, for strength and many hours spent brainstorming and trying out new ideas! Thankyou also to the team at Practice Tuckshop who dealt with our millions of requests and dealing with ever-changing SMMs.
