THE PLACE OF THE GRAVE: THE CENTRE FOR DYING ON STAGE #1

Dates: 07 Aug - 07 Aug

Show Time: 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Krõõt Juurak

Dive Bar events are always free. Capacity is limited to 50 people, with places given on a first come, first served basis.

On this evening, choreographer Krõõt Juurak will present her lecture The Place of the Grave, in collaboration with Alex Bailey. Somewhere between the deeply engaging and the uncomfortably real, Krõõt’s delivery is that of the stand-offish stand-up tragi-comic. This lecture explores notions of disappearance, expectancy, and the duty of memory with regard to modesty. Cheap Shots will be served from the bar, at the knockdown price of €3. Krõõt’s performance is kindly supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.

This event is running as part of the exhibition The Centre For Dying On Stage #1, curated by Kate Strain. Every Thursday a recurring Dive Bar will transform the gallery into an informal social space for performance, exchange and encounter.
