A POEM OF LOVE AND DEATH

What happens when memories of a past love come back to haunt us.


Berta is still dressed in her bridal dress.

The groom however never arrived and she was left waiting. Now she hears the voices and sounds of that fateful day and she slowly comes out of her coffin.


Concept, text, and performance: Patricia O'Donovan

Puppet and coffin: built by Patricia O'Donovan





Hadas Ofrat taught us, at the School for Visual Theater, how to carve out a puppet's head from a solid block of wood and the mechanisms to move its hand and lower jaw.

The coffin I built inspired by Rene Magritte's "The Balcony".



The show opened at the first Finale of the SVT in 1986
