For Their Own Good – Untied Artists

shapeimage_1Can the way we kill animals tell us anything about how we deal with our own demise? With unflinching honesty and an eerily detached workmanship, two knackermen investigate the pitfalls of being high up the evolutionary chain.

 

Combining puppetry, new writing and documentary material, Fringe First 2013 award winner, For Their Own Good tells a moving and darkly comic tale about the only certainty in life: death and how it’s become removed from us as a process.

 

Performing on May 13th at  8.00pm, tickets for  For Their Own Good (Untied Artists)  are available from Leeds Tickets

In the context of Dying Awareness Week, this event will be an opportunity to reflect on human and animal death; on how we die and how we want to die; on how we talk about dying or why we don’t.
