In Performance: The Etiquette of Death June 14 – July 1, 2012 (NYC)

The Etiquette of Death
June 14 – July 1, 2012

A Chris Tanner Production
Directed by Everett Quinton,
Choreographed by Julie Atlas Muz,

Death is a messy and terrifying horror. Or, it can be a quiet, unapologetic thief in the night. When you explore the artifice and manners that surround this unruly journey – the etiquette of death — the outcome can be absurd, paradoxical, wrenching, and at times, hilarious. The Performance is a collage of scenes, songs, poetry, music and dance that explores the “Etiquette of Death”.
