Until the short of breath
Such a life
Such a profession
Sometimes you just don’t want to talk to anyone
Sometimes the pain is too strong
Everything has already happened, you can’t change it
And let live the others
Professionally. For show.
Lamentation. Hysteria. Sob.
That oh!

Do you worry sometimes if “your life means something”? What will you leave behind? And who will weep over you? Do not worry! Such people will be arranged.

Mourning is rather unpopular topic today. By creating “Mourners” we wanted to confront tradition with modernity and look at the different ways of “survival” and telling about it. Creating scenes alternately serious, ironic, funny, sad, and sometimes grotesque, we try to play with the audience sensibility, we build emotional traps and we sometimes reveal the mechanisms of show. “Mourners” are interactive and break the barriers of scene, build intimacy in a close encounter of spectator and the artist.
