Don’t Be Afraid, You’re Already Dead: The People’s Pyramid
time:15:00
price: Tickets Below

Information:

This event is part of Good Grief Bristol, A Festival of Love and Loss. 11-17 May 2020 (https://goodgriefbristol.com/).

Radical undertakers Claire and Rupert Callender, founders of the award-winning Green Funeral Company, bring you a performance piece followed by a discussion about their ground-breaking People’s Pyramid project.

The People’s Pyramid is a memorial pyramid in Liverpool made from bricks containing cremated human remains. The Pyramid was a collaboration between The Green Funeral Company and Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond of legendary acid house band KLF. The Pyramid is a focal point for Liverpool’s Toxeth Day of the Dead; an annual remembrance ritual which takes place in November.

Don’t Be Afraid, You’re Already Dead is a short, evolving spoken word performance piece. It is disorientating and hallucinatory and plays with the notions of what it means to be alive and what it means to be dead. It turns conventional ideas of ancestral veneration upside down, bringing in figures of influence in our personal history who are often overlooked. It also recalibrates our own lives amid the swirling white noise of existence. This event is accompanied by a film created by Jimmy Cauty specifically for the ritual.

Concessions are available for OAPs, students, under 18s, the unwaged, and people with disabilities.
