Rehearsal for Death is a glorious exploration of life’s only certainty: death.
In this physical theatre piece, Rebekah Stuart and Sophie Thompson dance through mortality, decay, and grief. Taking inspiration from storytelling and ritual, the dancers revel in our shared impermanence, and measure the weight of mortality on the living.
Created, produced, directed and performed by Rebekah Stuart and Sophie Thompson

Dance Choir - Rebekah 1st Rehearsal

Dance Choir - Rebekah 1st Rehearsal
Rebekah 1st Rehearsal with Candice Polglase, Dale Polglase, Ben Jamieson, Ella Baxter, Stacey Lake, Sarah Hotchin, Sophie Thompson. 

The song and dance Rebekah shared with me yesterday was today shared with the group. The feeling of the song could be seen in each person as they let it flow over them. Dale said it was like having a long ago memory that was both beautiful and sad, but not bad, and not necessary a memory of his own.


The group singing was powerful. I think Rebekah is really onto something with this combination of dance and choir, I cant wait to see the idea expand and be played with in future workshops. I think the group were similarly excited.

In a presentational formation on seats Rebekah also had the group enact a series of directions one after the other( written down for each person). This sets up a complex web of inter-relatedness as cross contamination of mood, feeling and action ripples through the group.
