How to Disappear Completely
Performed by Itai Erdal. Directed by James Long. Produced by The Chop Shop Theatre, Vancouver.
Playwright, performer, lighting designer Itai Erdal’s tour-de-force show is part autobiography and part live theatrical lighting demonstration.
His mother was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2000 and was given only nine months to live. Erdal moved back to Israel to spend every moment with his dying mother. During that time he took hours of film and pictures, documenting her final days. In a starkly simple yet deeply profound original work, Erdal demonstrates his approach to theatrical lighting while reflecting on the events following his mother asking him to take her life.
