Tony Yap & Festival Artists | Eulogy For The Living | 26 Nov | Site 1 | 8.30pm

Eulogy for the Living is a large-scale performance, a spectacular and soulful finale to the festival, facilitated by Tony Yap, performed by festival artists, with live music, and projections. Eulogy for the Living is a kind of devotional work for making our way in the world, an internal journey into the memory of body and soul. Here artists and audience transform and reconnect a deeper part of ourselves, within the fleeting transience of contemporary life. We the living both preserve the past and allow things to pass – we eulogise ourselves in each moment. Life goes on…
