Thank you to STEVE PALMER and WESTCOTT FUNERAL HOME making the bold move and being the first funeral home to host
THE DEATH MONOLOGUES on DAY OF THE DEAD
What people are saying about THE DEATH MONOLOGUES shows at the International Fringe Festival in NEW YORK:
"The Death Monologues is a warm and intimate performance, crafted with a profound respect for life, love, loss and healing. Through a conversation with Death, Giselle Suarez leads her audience on a journey of personal discovery about the one thing all people have in common and encourages us to reconsider our preconceived notions of death. It is an uplifting spiritual and healing work of art. I came away from the experience with a deeper understanding of how new life emerges in the space loss creates."
“I really appreciated this perspective on death and felt uplifted by the message.”
“The heartfelt story of Giselle's mother's death brought me to tears. Having lost a parent myself this play really resonated with me.”
“The Death Monologues makes you laugh and cry reminding you that life and death are two sides of the same coin and this is a currency we must spend wisely.”
“Having just gone through a tragic death in my family, this play's message allowed me to feel connected, uplifted, and liberated from my loss.”
“What a beautiful and touching piece about a difficult subject that touches all our lives.”
“I saw your performance of Death Monologues today at the Fringe Festival in NYC. It was a wonderful play, and beautifully performed: I was moved and energized. You seemed to capture so much about our relationship with death, redirecting our fear into more constructive channels.”
"The Death Monologues doesn’t cope with Death, it holds Death’s hand and sings her song. This theatrical experience is rewarding as it is remarkable, providing a gentle force that rehabilitates the grief we inhabit through loss. A viewer will leave this show with a renewed respect for life and even an appreciation for death."
"Thank you for this Giselle. It is as much a brilliant work of art as it is a profound healing experience."
