The performance contains sensible scenes. Together with Johanna we decided to film her death. Her wish was to speak openly about it. To show it. Because it is the loneliest work, she said.

In their new play Milo Rau and his team are tackling a theme that has been at the heart of Rau’s work for many years: the question of farewell, grieving and death, but also of memory and solidarity in the face of the final moments. Four actresses and actors accompany a woman who decides to proceed euthanasia, and share their personal stories about farewell and rebirth, art and love, memory and forgetting. A radical and tender production that goes to the limits of what can be represented on stage. 

 In the first part of ‘The Trilogy of Private Life’ – Family (2020) - Milo Rau used the collective suicide of a family to show Western society on the brink. Apart from the terrible ending there is nothing on stage but an ordinary evening: a study of small things, the beauty and banality of the daily life. With Grief & Beauty Milo Rau continues his study of the private: We look into a normal apartment, an experimental room in which the actresses and actors approach the most incomprehensible of every life, the end, and the limits of the representation of death, grief and beauty.

"A universal tale of life and death, and how the one springs naturally from the other"
Hein Janssen - Volkskrant*****


"HOW TO RECONCILE GRIEF AND BEAUTY? IT IS EXACTLY WHAT MILO RAU SHOWS. COMFORTING BEAUTY IS BORN FROM THE TENDERNESS AND TRUTH OF THE EMOTIONS THAT EVERY ONE OF US EXPERIENCES"
Guy Duplat - La Libre
