The Act of Dying
In The Act of Dying three performers are on a quest for the ultimate freedom that is characteristic for animation figures: to rise again after dying a violent death. Both violence and death are problematic concepts in theatre, because they are simply impossible to stage. De Polen are investigating the language of the exploding actor, and the moment in which hilarity and horror coincide.
