How can we, in terms of emotions, deal with mortality and face ourselves as mortal beings? The performer establishes a very close relationship with her stage partner – death – thus trying to convey a very specific emotion and to present death as inevitability, a part of life, while toying with grotesque, with the elements of horror, drama, comedy, and parody alongside her trapeze performance. The wish to get to know death, the fear, the passion, the anger, those are just some of the emotions displayed in the performance through circus and puppetry, creating a unique narrative without words.
