Rigor Mortis: Projects


a visual love poem to grief by Ahmed Ayed

The story of a man who cannot let go in his despair and clings on to what little remains in his memories of the absent loved one.

I could not begin to describe what this work has been, what it has meant, for us, for the team, nor the changes it and we have undergone throughout the years...

I will only say this: when Ahmed first came to me this project and we started dreaming about it, little did we know that it would take us... six years to accomplish. That was in October 2015.

[More about the process coming up on my blog]

In the meantime... More on : Atelier 210, Collectif Illicium, Théâtre Marni
