Playwright Sergio Blanco explores his relationship with death in this moving, autobiographical work.
A twisting, kaleidoscopic work of autofiction, When You Walk Over My Grave recounts the Franco-Uruguayan playwright Sergio Blanco’s last days.
Sergio has decided to die. Not out of despair or pain, but simply because he wants it to end, and to turn this final step into a beautiful and serene choice.
One of contemporary theatre’s outliers, the multi-award-winning Sergio Blanco’s plays have pioneered a new style of autofiction. They are in turns, sublimely comedic, moving, visceral and intellectual works.
Performed in Spanish with English supertitles.
