Dancers and choreographers Meg Stuart, Benoît Lachambre and Simone Aughterlony meet Lidia, Michel and Noël who are already enfeebled by age. All are prepared to live a unique experience in the sumptuous setting of the Opéra de la Monnaie. In an unexpected manner, both physical and lyrical, Before We Go, raises the veil on a still taboo subject – the end of life – while using all art forms to create a true homage to life and to human fragility.
