An ending. A beginning. A goodbye.
One man has twenty-four hours to perform his father’s funeral rites. This intimate, final ceremony brings to life a rich tapestry of shared memories and a complex relationship cut short by death. A powerful journey of love, loss, and what it means to be a parent.
Combining striking visual and physical storytelling with dynamic projection and a resonant soundtrack, internationally acclaimed theatre makers Ramesh Meyyappan and George Mann collaborate for the first time to create an epic non-verbal solo show.
Multi award-winning theatre company Ad Infinitum (Translunar Paradise ★★★★★ The Observer, Light ★★★★★ The Times) presents a bold new performance celebrating the transformative power of grief and ritual.
Presented as part of Manipulate Festival 2024, running from 1–11 February at venues across Edinburgh.
