The Director is a performance starring charismatic ex-funeral director, Scott Turnbull, and artist Lara Thoms. Together the pair demystify elements of the death industry, using humour and first-hand knowledge to dig a little deeper on what happens after we go. Blurring the roles of funeral director and theatre director, Thoms and Turnbull ask each other to perform tasks, share knowledge and give feedback on each other’s actions. Balancing macabre reality, playfulness and the tragic elements of death, the result is a spiky, funny and invigorating performance.
