Cafe Philosophique De La Mort: Aging and Mortality @ Alex Theatre | Saint Kilda | Victoria | Australia

Cafe Philosophique De La Mort will utilise poetry and music to prompt safe and engaging conversation around death and dying. We will seek to better understand its process, overcome our fears, consider our rituals and discuss whether we need others. We will look into grief and how we can support those experiencing loss and we will evaluate the ways our communities support the ageing process.

Aging and Mortality

Death is the only certainty of life, yet we know so little about it. Can we find solace in the unknown and what happens when we surrender to the idea of mortality? How, as a community, can we best support the inevitable process of aging?
Spoken Word: Farah Beaini | Enza Gandolfo | May Jasper | Paraskevi Freda Tsiloglou
Music: Eddie Ink

We acknowledge this event is taking place on the stolen lands of the Boonwurrung and Wurundjeri Peoples of the Kulin Nations. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future.

This event is wheel chair accessible.

Cafe Philosophique is devised and curated by Jess Fairfax
