“As death approaches the quality of the time that remains becomes the issue.”
Michael Kearney, Mortally Wounded
Afterlife is an experimental performance piece about death, dying, and how we choose to live performed by a distinguished international cast. Through existing materials, original material, and spontaneous material and interaction with the audience the performers hold up a mirror to mortality asking everyone to think about their own lives and experience."
AfterLife explores the traditions around death in a personal and cultural way. The cast examines the traditions, taboos, myths, legends, and assumptions about death and afterlife as experienced in their own lives and countries.
Humor is utilized throughout as a way to get the audience to reflect on their own lives and death.
Orcas Island Project is a international group of performers founded by and under the direction of Randy Dixon.
