Before We Go (Dir. Jorge León)
Brussels, La Monnaie Opera House. Memento mori meets carpe diem. Three people near the end of their lives meet with choreographers, actors and musicians. They take part in a unique encounter which involves music, dance and silence. Together they attempt to give shape to the questions, hopes and fears that the end of life gives rise to.
The multi award-winning Before We Go is an intense and powerful journey into the heart of that experience. Between reality and representation, it is a tribute to the fragility of the human condition, the tragedy of the body and the freedom of the spirit.
