Can we live authentically without hurting ourselves – or someone else?

Mixing documentary footage, storytelling, and live-music, The Death & Life of All of Us is a funny and poignant exploration of family secrets, shame, and embracing our imperfections.

At 19, Victor found his long-lost great-aunt Marcelle in Rome. She’d moved from Judaism to Christianity, Lebanon to Italy, changed her name and kept a life-long secret. He started making a documentary about her life. 20 years later, he still hasn’t completed it…

The Death & Life of All of Us comes to Salford after a sell-out premiere at Soho Theatre, London and a full run at Summerhall during Edinburgh Fringe 2023.

Victor Esses is a Jewish-Lebanese Latinx queer performance artist, whose practice centres biographical stories of belonging, resilience, and intimacy.
