Here’s what Smith and SoulOTheatre had to say about Memento Mori:

Using mask, dance and Toronto’s foremost 4-piece Tango ensemble, Payadora, the audience goes on a voyage through the last night of Tracey’s life. Exploring the universal themes of life, death, and magic mushrooms, Memento Mori (Latin for ‘Remember you are mortal’) is staged as a private party in a backyard and then inside a gallery space on College Street that was once used as a synagogue. On her last night on earth, Tracey invites the audience to passionately explore the idea of fully living, while you’re still alive and to participate as much or as little in this Day of the Dead themed celebration as they desire.

Part garden party, part death ritual – Memento Mori promises to be the best last night of anyone’s life ever!

I’m definitely going to be there. How ’bout you?
