Dying Matters – Are you ready?
Created in response to a provocative and unashamedly honest dialogue about death,
Antonia Beck and Lucy Nicholls have written and produced The Death Show which looks to
better understand society’s relationship with death and dying, and why we struggle to
accept our own mortality. It is both a personal view of the subject matter, and an
exploration of how we as a society can have better conversations about death and dying.
In today’s society with the uncertainty of Brexit, projected economy slumps and even the
prolific messages we’re bombarded with from social media there is very little certainty in our
lives. The one and only thing in life that we can all be certain of is that we WILL die. Whilst for
many of us this may seem a rather somber and morbid thought, for two artists from
Birmingham this is the very inspiration behind their new show.
