Put Out The Light
An object is not so attached to its name that one cannot find for it another one which is more suitable. — René Magritte
How do we relate to death? How can we talk about something which no living being has experienced? Which language shall we use to talk about something outside of the borders of language?
The Fourth Stage wants to give a new name to death. The piece places different subjective perspectives about death together. Some of these come from writers like Langston Hughes, Emily Dickenson, Irvin Yalom and Patricia de Martelaere. Other thoughts are gathered from people related to the company or created during the process. Put Out The Light is a collage, reaching for an understanding of that which cannot be understood.
