A poetic and physical Gazart performance for 8 – 11 year-old children.

We buried Grandpa. But it was only his body that we buried. Grandpa is still the sound of an upright bass, the sensation of large rough hands, and the scent of fish stew and the open sea.

A young boy, Carl, recently attended his Grandfather’s funeral. Carl is in mourning. It’s hard to talk about – he can’t find the words to express his feelings. During his encounter with these difficult emotions, a girl pops up out of the blue. Together they explore sorrow and its many facets  – light as well as dark. They discover a common ground in the loss of a loved one.
