Since We All Die, Why Bother?

What are the things we're not allowed to talk about concerning death? Through theatre-based methodology, this workshop will guide participants to creatively explore this question through multiple perspectives.

Individually or collectively, (depending on their choice), participants will write a performance piece on death reimagined. Interested participants can present their piece on stage that evening at Coler Hospital Canteen alongside the panel discussion.
