Invitation to Sit with Death Awhile

an intimate performance installation that invites individuals to contemplate mortality, and privately share experiences of love and loss.

An intimate one-on-one performance installation combining projection, song, and the enactment of simple tasks.
Inside a tiny sitting room a teapot quietly sings. A woman will offer you a shot of whiskey and a task to perform.
She is happy to bear witness, or to do the task for you, or to simply sit with you in silence.
Experienced in sitting with death for awhile, she prefers to do it with you.
An Invitation To Sit With Death Awhile is Ladyfinger/Igneous collaboration devised by Dawn Albinger and Suzon Fuks.
Presented in November 2016 at Metroarts for Deathfest.

Thanks for the trigger to think about and softly grieve the loss of my nephew…There’s a softness about this space. Like a Santa Claus floating in a breeze. A breath. A holding.

What a gift to your audience, boutique chamber theatre, the best kind… Heart moved.

We really need more of this kind of art, so that we can know ourselves better. It is not wank, nor a waste of money.

Whiskey is a helpful thing! The price of love is grief. And that’s ok.
