Exploring true stories and accounts from people that have experienced suicide in their family. The project is a movable installation that is both an exhibition space and a space for the performance. Made up out of 70 m2 of rusty drawers. Inside this room five people reconstructs a life that has ended. Two brothers, a neighbour, a teacher and a lover.
With warmth, humour and music, they tell stories about the one they have lost. A brother, a student, a neighbour boy, the first love.
The audience are sitting close together inside the intimate venue, that resembles an archive, experience the actors and stories closely. After the show the drawers are opened to reveal an archive, turning the space into a small museum, a room for reflection with different sensory experiences that can awaken associations for our own lives and own memories.
