‘Each of you has his or her own death, you carry it with you in a secret place from the moment you’re born, it belongs to you and you belong to it’.

For millennia, death, with chilling precision, has brought an end to those selected to meet their destiny. But what would happen if death put away her emblematic scythe and withdrew from everyday life?

Inspired by Nobel Prize winner José Saramago’s darkly humorous novel and developed in collaboration with an award winning creative team, Death at Intervals combines theatre, music and original song lyrics in an unconventional and touching duet between death and her musician.
