“Sein zum Tode” (Being-Towards-Death) Expressive Arts Therapy Oriented Theatre
What would you do if you had only one week to live?
Would you continue with your day-to-day routine?
Whom would you wish to spend the time with?
Would you choose to go on an adventure?
Would you fill up your schedule?
Or would you reprioritise your life tasks?
On this last journey of life, would you take a chance to be true to yourself for once?
“If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself.”
~ Martin Heidegger (German philosopher)
When the topic of death is no longer taboo, together we look at death directly, and from it we learn how to live.
Expressive Arts Therapy Oriented Theatre was founded by Ms. Canna Tang, Expressive Arts Therapist of HKEXAT. It’s a theatre-based approach to expressive arts therapy in which the theatre becomes a safe container of thoughts and emotions, and the flow of imagination and creation are sparked in multi-modality art experiences. During the performance, audiences are guided to feel the moment and create an “Aesthetic Response”, and a two-way arts and communication platform are constructed. It’s a place where everyone can be seen.
“Sein zum Tode” incorporates poetry, visual art, dance & movement, music and drama to express the performers’ thoughts and explorations about death. It allows us to let go of rational thinking and simply feel and be aware of how death leaves its mark on our life.
