Davy Pieters, How Did I Die

In How Did I Die, time cannot be trusted: neither the period from the discovery of the body to a possible conclusion, nor the possible final hours of the deceased. Nothing is certain. Time and truth are manipulated, conspiracy theories revised. The truth is a complex puzzle in which our fantasies can be gruesomely real or unreal. Just one murder has taken place, but there are countless paths that could have led to it. Does the reconstruction bring us closer to the truth, or does it push us further away? How Did I Die is a realistically fictional, cinematic, physical production. Particularly suitable for those who love a good thriller.

See How Did I Die as part of our Gala Opening double bill alongside Justin Shoulder’s Carrion at Warwick Arts Centre on Tuesday 15th October. Our special price double bill ticket includes a free return bus leaving Birmingham at 6pm from Minerva Works and returning after the last show. Double bill ticket available here.

Please note Warwick Arts Centre is in Coventry and not walkable from the other Birmingham venues.

‘The starting point of How Did I Die may be simple, the precision with which the performance is constructed is masterful. It requires a great talent to tickle the brains of your audience in such an intelligent, witty and hallucinatory way.’

Fierce Says

A murder mystery like you’ve never seen it before. This is theatre for the Netflix generation: a gripping drama, but played out with unbelievable movement skill, with a 90s I Know What You Did Last Summer kinda vibe. Not available on iPlayer.
