The process and collaboration inherent in producing any kind of theatre is also evident in this work, the conversations and interactions between students to some extent constituting the piece. In many cases, there is discussion over how the death should look, or how the individual would feel. There is also a lot of laughing and humour – an approach which obviously helps the students to deal with this particularly heavy theme. Because this is not a real play there is also an informality to these negotiations – the students laugh, the props are basic (a small heater representing a tumour in one instance) and we can see the room they practice in - soda bottles on the table, shoes lined up along the mat. Which just goes to show how the acting out of a thing – so obviously fake and play as it is – can bring a concept to life and help us to work through the anxieties and emotions associated with it.
