A frail old man is nursed by his son. His body bordering on decay. Grief, helplessness but also emotional attachment determine the exaggerated yet delicately poetic as well as radically artistic representation of a domestic scene. The deeply human suffering of the finiteness of existence, coupled with the individual tragedy of aging, is outshone by the gaze of Jesus.
The performance is followed by an artist talk with members of the company.
