The Last Tablet
“The Last Tablet” stems from our on-going research on the Epic of Gilgamesh, which resulted in "He Who Saw Everything” in 2015, a theatre investigation on death, the value of life and new forms of quests for immortality in contemporary societies. This new work revisits the same research material in the light of recent events that are shaping our world. This project, which started in 2014, originates from a need to address currently emerging paradigms redefining our relationships to life and the values attached to the body. At an age when mass death is used as a tool of leverage between fighting factions, has the simple, non-heroic death of the individual been demystified?
