With Dying Together, Lotte van den Berg tackles the question of death as a shared act rather than its loneliness. Featuring eight professional artists and eight audience members (who will not be the same every night) she stages situations in which the act of dying takes on a new meaning each time. According to the Dutch director, there is a death desire that is not one of departing life but one of dying with the others.
