How did the show as a whole make you feel?
I think dread mostly, I haven't really experienced much death in my life and I'm secretly worried once a close death does occur that I won't “feel” it as I haven't felt those of my grandparents (though we weren't close). Having mostly settled my own fears of death (thanks Sting) I have only to expect the coming death of those I love. But in that there is the knowledge that I am powerless against it, and there's almost comfort in that and I feel like that's what this performance explored from the perspective of the dead person's own memories relived.
What did you think it was about?
Reflection (the title kinda gives it away) on what was and is. Remembering and sharing the moments of a life in a fairly mediative setting that didn't wallow too much in grief. And a warm hope at the end.
What was your most memorable part?
Did you fall asleep?
Any notable mentions?
Who the hell would bury their daughter in exercise leggings???
