Share Your Story!

Remember that time we did a cabaret all about death? (If not, take a listen to our three podcast episodes from the performance: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3!) Well, the topic hasn't gone anywhere, and we're getting back into it. We're excited to announce the launch of a new interview-based project exploring the many aspects of the subject of death, dying, and after-life in New York. Our investigation will include a variety of spiritual, cultural, professional, and personal perceptions about death and dying as a universal human experience. We'll be working on a full-scale production using a large number of the collected interviews.

So we are currently speaking to many different people specifically in NY about their experiences with death and we are looking for your contribution. Are you now, or have you ever been, dead? Is your cool aunt a medium? Is there a ghost in your house? If you deal with death in your profession or if you have a surprising personal story about death, we would love to hear from you! The only requirement is that you live or work here or that your story relates somehow to life (and death) in NYC.

Please send us a brief summary of your story or shoot any questions you might have to and we'll be in touch about setting up an interview with you. As we are creating a verbatim theater piece, we would record and transcribe the interview; and you can absolutely choose to remain anonymous.

We are looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks so much!
