noun: psychopomp; plural noun: psychopomps;
a guide of souls to the place of the dead.
the spiritual guide of a living person's soul.
Our work intends to explore & question the journey from life to death, and offer audiences a guide through the depth & breadth of the human experience; from the ecstasy of joy to the darkness of despair.
By sharing these experiences with our audiences, we hope to transgress the boundaries of time, space and culture to focus on what connects us - what it truly means to be human.
As an international collective of theatre artists, our work aims to develop questioning within our society that is relevant to our generation.
