"One thing I care about is taking poetry as the first form of understanding. If poetry isn't understanding all, the whole world, then it isn't worth anything" - Robert Frost (1874 - 1963)
Home Burial is a theatrical adaptation of the poems Home Burial (1914) and The Witch of Coös (1922) by the North American poet Robert Frost.
Using as a starting point Frost's saying that "giving anything a form gives you confidence in the universe", the play aims to pick up the pieces left shattered after a year of pandemic by examining the themes of guilt, love and the supernatural. In The Witch of Coös a woman recalls the day when a skeleton escaped from the cellar and found his way to the attic. In Home Burial a couple deals with the impact of grief and the challenges of communication.
The work is the result of a collaboration between an international ensemble of London based theatre artists.
With: Bethany Denham, Mateus Monteiro, Sofia Canosa, Jiazheng Li.
