Holy Dying by the Forest Collective 

Co-Produced by Burrinja and La Mama Theatre

This stunning piece of immersive, musical and physical theatre is bound to get the audience thinking about death and life in a new light.

Combining classical composition, contemporary script writing and insightful direction the Holy Dying is Inspired by and adapted from Jeremy Taylor’s 1651 ‘The rules and exercises of Holy Dying’. The new physical theatre piece explores the absurd influence of death over life and draws the audience into a place of contemplation and exploration.

Taylor wrote his book so that his readers may find a divine death; Osztreicher explores these universal existential questions, on morality, theology and a greater existence, so that we may one day answer our own.

Burrinja has leapt into the world of producing contemporary theatre with this co-commissioned work by the Abbotsford Convent-based Forest Collective, along with the renowned La Mama Theatre, Carlton. The work will premiere at this year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival before coming to Burrinja, where we become a part of this exciting Fringe program for the first time.

Visit www.forestcollective.com.au for more information on the collective.
Not suitable for children under 15.
