“Neither flowers, nor funeral, nor ashes nor tantán” is a story of overcoming, tenderness, and humanity. Focused on palliative care and “a good death,” the piece is a journey that urges us to face life with joy and to wonder what its end will be like. It is a tribute to all those who left this world in pain and suffering, a recognition of all those others who accompany in this final stage without ever losing their smile.

Text written by María Goiricelaya as part of the Dramatic Residencies program of the Centro Dramático Nacional during the 2021-2022 season.
