The Art of Dying
with and by Paolo Nani & Kristjan Ingimarsson
90 minutes of following two clowns on top of their career, on and behind the stage.
We see their amazing numbers, friendship and success; Together we learn that one of them will soon die. We experience how this affects their lives. We see how they begin to think of death as clowns and see them reveal a wonderful mystery:
THAT IS LIFE BEFORE DEATH.
A performance filled with !!GAGS !!, rhythm, music, poetry, and all without a single word.
The two extreems of theatre: the mask of laughter and the mask of crying.
A performance which combines laughter and tears, and takes a humorous look at a theme, which we must all face, but noone wishes to see: DEATH.
