On the subject of cartoon characters the Slovenian philosopher Žižek said: “They know neither death, sexuality, nor suffering. You can cut them into pieces, but they will get up like it was nothing.” The quote challenged three actors to die as cheerful non-human characters in The Act of Dying. By stepping into the shoes of these animated figures they hope to find the ultimate liberation: to resurrect after a violent death.
A physical, wordless show in which the slow and deeply religious Third Symphonie by the Polish composer Henryk Górecki [1933-201] locks horns with the boisterous cartoon world of wham, splash & kaboom. The show is a probing and hilarious reflection on death and violence in our society.
