BARTALK is a multidisciplinary lecture-performance-storytelling series taking place in different bars in The Hague.

Death is a universal truth. In some communities the topic is taboo, and in others wholly embraced. Current generations are grappling with the added complications of digital life, traditions vs shifting policies, and migration. This inevitable event is represented and expressed through a spectrum of forms and colours. In this BARTALK we dive into a few of them by asking: How do we grieve for those who have passed? What traditions can we reach out to when confronted with death? And how can technology aid us with the acceptance of death?

BARTALK #18 features guests who preserve and expand ritualistic traditions, merge physical and virtual reality as a way to confront death as well as utilise virtual reality for spiritual growth and use moaning as a way to express grief.
