Les petites morts - I hope you die soon

Les petites morts - I hope you die soon

Les petites morts - I hope you die soon

“Death is everywhere, just breathe yourself into it.”
Jared Gradinger and Angela Schubot’s work focuses on the ‘debordering’ of the body. Their starting point is the dissolution of the self. How can one stop ‘I-ing’? And in their
attempt to do so, how far beyond intimacy does it bring them and what new forms of co- existence will emerge. With “Les Petites Morts – i hope you die soon” Gradinger
and Schubot bring this aspect to another level and raise the paradoxical question of how two individuals can die together on stage. This paradox is used as the starting point to develop a movement language that aims at the disappearance of one’s own body whilst still remaining on the stage. Is it possible to overcome the solitude of death through unconditional togetherness? Can we transform the fear of dying into acceptance or even into something that longs to die? “i hope you die soon” is the first part of the project “Les Petites Morts”.


“if there is no person then the problem of personal continuity is not there. the annihilation of the person at death is no longer a problem if there is no person before to start with...”


we tried to find a vibration that is bigger than the visual and the actuality of the body. we tried melting outwards and leaving the body behind. we tried to be neither here nor there. we tried to be sequential and simultaneously at the same time. we tried to touch the infinite. we tried to release identification with the body, mind and soul. we tried to meet death. we failed and failed and failed ...


(Angela Schubot and Jared Gradinger)


Liberation is seen either while the body-mind is still functioning or at the end of death of the body-mind and it does not matter which, except in the story ‘at death there is only liberation’. It is just more chic to see liberation when you are alive.
(Max Furlaud)
The breath of each and every one of us is ethereal. Like the wind, the breath is both here in the physical world and, at the same time, rarefied, not fully part of the heaviness of the world of matter. The breath is at once material, and at once “spiritual”; it is a link between the physical and the spiritual worlds.
(Melech ben Ya’aqov)
