Pay the boatman. Or don’t. He’ll ferry you across anyway.
A song cycle that explores the adventure of death from before the beginning to well after the end. Afterlife gives voice to the dying, the dead, the grieving and the relieved, the coroners and the taxidermists and all those who struggle to let go of what is gone. An unexpected journey, with shades of humour through the shadows, following through to the one certain end.
Afterlife is the premiere of a new work by Nic Courto, performed by popular, award-winning Hobart based ensemble ThylaSing.
