Dance blends with theater in this highly-visual performance that reflects on the universal experience of facing death.
Last Ward follows one man’s journey towards death in a hospital room. Surrounded by the sterile mechanisms of modern medicine, the patient reflects on his life, relationships and connection to place, as the ritual of doctor visits and family calls transform into an increasingly bizarre landscape of tragedy and humor.
The evening-length performance was created in residencies at Baryshnikov Arts Center (NYC), Chaillot - théâtre national de la Danse (Paris), Al-Hakawati Theater (Jerusalem), and Jacob’s Pillow (MA), and features an international cast including guest artist Khalifa Natour performing a script in Arabic with English subtitles.
