Death Show For Children

Lead artist: Magda san millan

collaborator: Katelyn Bobek

“Death Show for Children” is a new solo show endeavor coming on the heels of my first show about death and children “feral wild girl child.” What? She wants to make TWO shows about children and death?! “feral wild girl child” premiered in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival in 2018. It’s central theme was the years I spent working as an artist in residence on a pediatric oncology unit. I didn’t think the show was appropriate for children but a couple of my artist friends brought their kids to see it anyway because their kids have already seen all manner of nudity and provocation in their short time on this planet. These art kids loved the show. I started to want to perform specifically for them around death.
