One day, death is going to come knocking politely on your door. What will you do, unsuspecting and welcoming as you are? You open the door. End of story. But things may end in more exhilarating ways, as choreographer Tabea Martin shows. In her wonderful dance show Forever she queries her audience on life, death, and immortality. Sounds tombstone-heavy, but in Martin’s playful hands it isn’t. Facing the adults, who cling to science, religion and spirituality, she places children, who fantasize about death and the afterlife. The Swiss choreographer finds her material in interviews, games and workshops with children aged 8 to 12. Their stories are like life buoys on the ocean. Forever is a show of unprecedented beauty, imagery and joy. A life-affirming must-see for adults and young audiences from age 8. Tabea Martin showcased her considerable imaginative powers at earlier editions of Boulevard. In 2018 four dancers excelled in her Pink for Girls & Blue for Boys.

This performance is suitable for anyone over 8 years old.
