Death is still a taboo subject... we don't laugh about it, we don't joke about it and we certainly don't tell stories about it!

And if we would dare to? We dared!

"This is the end, my friend" is a story night about death that very quickly turns into something completely different: a celebration of life, an awareness of the small moments of happiness, a gratitude for every little breath and every person who shares it with us.


Storytelling: Betsy Dentzer & Luisa Bevilacqua 

Production: Erzielkonscht a.s.b.l.

Support: Coordination Culturelle de la Ville de Luxembourg, Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte, Ministère de la Culture Luxembourg, Fondation Indépendance by BIL

"This is not the end, my friend" has been created as one of four story nights of the two years project CONTE-QUEST (2021-2023).

Betsy Dentzer and Luisa Bevilacqua created this project to promote the art of storytelling for adults in Luxembourg. The purpose of CONTE-QUEST was to build up the loyalty of this new audience over the long term. To reach this goal, the artists explored new artistic forms that went beyond traditional shows and conventional frameworks.

The story nights aimed to introduce the audience to the very diverse repertoire of oral literature in so-called "unusual" places, i.e. places outside the ordinary theatrical context. "This is not end, my friend" took place at the Schluechthaus Hollerich and was organised in collaboration with Coordination culturelle de la Ville de Luxembourg & Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg.
