Henrike Iglesias are back at brut! FLAMES TO DUST is their show about finality and grief, endings and loops and loops and endings. Together we ask: Why do all good things come to an end (end)? And what if we were able to start again? Inspired by the death positive movement and based on personal experiences, the performance collective goes on a journey that’s all about mortality and vanitas.

Caught up between rebirth and the apocalypse, we ask – together with our smartphones: What are the narratives that make our being in this world kind of meaningful? What’s our relationship with death? Why are we so eager to ignore its presence in our everyday lives? And what does death mean for queer family structures?

INFO: This is an interactive performance. Each audience member needs a mobile phone to participate in the performance. If you cannot bring a smartphone, the performance collective will provide you one to participate in the performance.
