A poetic and physical performance about loss for 8 – 11 year-old children.
We buried Grandpa. But it was only his body that we buried. Grandpa is still the sound of a double bass playing, the sensation of large rough hands, the scent of fish stew and the open sea. When I close my eyes, Grandpa is still here.
Two children have both lost their grandfather, and when they buried him, sorrow came to keep them company. Sorrow is like a warm blanket that you can nestle into, recalling the voice of Grandpa and his smells. But sorrow is also dark and heavy – a violent storm, a silent ghost. Sometimes the sorrow fills the entire world, and at other times you can put it aside in a bundle. But the sorrow is ever present.
Dealing with loss and grief, this performance follows two children who have lost their grandfather.
