That’s what it is to have the presumption to insinuate oneself into these forbidden places, to shatter their silence if only by murmurs, by babblings…with the most timid, prudent words…Let them once penetrate, and they are certain to introduce others…
—Nathalie Sarraute, The Use of Speech

The Mortuary is home to unclassifiable experiences, unusual collaborations, and underserved voices. We build community and incubate new performance centered around intimate exchange. We create context for liminal, hybrid, chimeric and otherwise uncontainable practices to realize themselves by doing.
