Death feels lonely
A ceremony for the Chilean actress Marí­a Cánepa


Three hundred steps in few instants.
Stone skin on my head.

The dead and the transparent flies -
what are they? And what do I matter?
Maybe death doesn't take everything away.


These verses by the Italian poet Antonio Verri sum up the performance. The British actress Julia Varley evokes her meeting and friendship with the Chilean actress Marí­a Cánepa. Death itself celebrates the creative fantasy and dedication of Marí­a, who was able to leave a trace after her departure.
