Death feels lonely. Ceremony for the Chilean actress María Cánepa.

"Three hundred steps in a few moments. Stone skin above my head. Dead and transparent flies. What are they? And what am I counting?Perhaps death does not take away everything."

These verses by the Italian poet Antonio Verri sum up the entire show. The British actress Julia Varley recalls the meeting and friendship with the Chilean actress María Cánepa. It is Death that celebrates the creative imagination and dedication of María who was able to leave a significant trail in the world after her final departure.
