On the threshold between life and afterlife, where souls take leave of their bodies, Death sits. The living fear her, escape her, deny her, seek her, invoke her; but how many delays and unexpected things happen in her work. With contemporary papier-mâché masks, without words, an ironic, poetic story about death is plainly told.

Teatro dei Gordi began in 2010, with 15 young artists who wanted to continue in the same vein as their training at the Accademia Paolo Grassi in Milan. In these years, they put on several shows for children and adults. In 2014, with T.R.E’s project, Teatro dei Gordi won Funder 35 from Cariplo’s Foundation.
