The bouquet of flowers begins to wilt. Quickly swat the mosquito before it attaches its proboscis to your skin! Visit grandma’s gravestone on a Sunday. In many ways, we encounter death almost every day in our lives. Early or late, we experience the finite nature of life, the need to say goodbye, and the grief that comes with it. This feeling may feel strange and inexplicable, especially to children. What exactly am I feeling? How do I express it? Does it have color, shape, a weight? Can it perhaps speak or even clench its fists? “Peng! Peng!” is an interdisciplinary performance of dance and object theatre that explores the thematic complex of death in a playful, theatrical way and gives plasticity to these diverse feelings to make them something tangible, perhaps even measurable.
