A theater production for the screen by copy & waste
For a fee, C. drives the deceased to the underworld. A mythical being, a solitary figure, surrounded only by the dead for far too long. Disinhibited by the middeath crisis, C. rages against the egocentric mortals, gives away baroque deaths or calls for collective suicide – until the impossible happens: C. dies.
The theater collective copy & waste traverses the history of death in their new production. Their Styx is a river of images: it leads from Greek mythology to the game shows of the 90s, from scholastic debates to a Russian death chamber. At stake is the question of whether one can learn to do this – to die. And thereby perhaps even: to live?
After works about the collapse of cities, the end of work and the swan song to nature, copy & waste dedicates its new series “Theater of Death” to dying. Besides, it’s always been the others who died is the first part of this series.
