Farwell is a tribute to our relationship with death, a lamentation dance for those no longer with us. The work follows the poetics of mourning, physical obituaries, and the idea of letting go of a person or a group. Different forms of farewell, personal and group, merge, binding each other with the fate of grief and shared memory. Events of parting occur continuously in every aspect of our lives: from our homes, from loved ones, from time-periods, and from our homeland. These are events that leave their mark as if inviting us to explore, search for the meaning and deeply acknowledge their existence.
