WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES

A poetic and physical performance about loss for children from 8 years

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.

Age: from 8 years and up

Duration: 40 min 

Premiere:November 26th. 2018 at Aaben Dans, Roskilde. Performed at Zangenbergs Teater March 23-30 2019
