...a new work in development exploring what a 'nice' death might look like, and how to have one.

Have a nice death...

“As Susan grew up, people disappeared. One day they were next door, the next day they were gone. Lost lives, stolen moments and final embraces. It was an undeclared civil war.

 

In the midst of this we drank tea, did jobs and went to school. But we did not talk about the people who disappeared. Why? Because it is happening everywhere, all around us every day…”

Susan presented a live sharing of this piece November 2023 during Making More Waves, a festival that celebrates the incredible talents of East Kent, in partnership with Ark (formerly Cliftonville Cultural Space).

This was funded by a micro-commission from ‘Looping The Loop’ an initiative for Thanet artists to experiment with ideas in a nurturing environment.

but I also can’t wait to see what it becomes.'
