A soulful monologue on life and its departure its permanence

She says the body becomes 21 grams lighter upon death.

She says that is the weight of the soul.

No. That is merely the loss of water.

Or, are our souls made of water?

She has no idea how to speak of his death. She can neither recount the incident nor knows what to make of this strange detachment. Who would listen and if that matters?

Director Liu Xiaoyi, Hong Kong playwright Janice Sze Wan Poon and performer Melissa Leung Hiu Tuen will bring you this soulful piece on the rupture of life and on death and its permanence.
