We're all going to die!

Kathryn Mannix & Claire Nolan

Dying is a modern taboo. And yet death is offered as entertainment in films, video-games and TV. We love ‘pretend’ death. We just don’t want to think about real dying. How does that misinformation affect our ability to discuss real death, to prepare for deaths of our dear ones – and even the end of our own lives?

Doctor Kathryn Mannix, who knows real dying from a career in palliative care, wants to explore our fascination with death. Using examples from the world of dying-as-entertainment, join her as she looks at the gap between art and reality, and test your own fears and assumptions.

Performances: The London Sick of the Fringe, 2017
