Sitting with Death – A Theatrical Reflection

by Natalie Abdou

This is a theatrical piece that reflects on the 8 months that I sat by my mother’s side as she transitioned from life to death in a palliative care unit in Toronto.

Sitting with Death posterThis piece is intended for personal healing, collective reflection on what it means to face death in a culture that often evades it, and to generate discussion around the support systems that exist in palliative care settings for patients, families and care takers alike.

This is an interactive performance that invites the audience to reflect alongside me on what it means to sit with death.
