How to deal with the loss of a loved one? After the death of his life partner Elu, South African performance artist Steven Cohen asked his 96-year-old replacement mother Nomsa how he was supposed to go on living. “Put your heart under your feet...and walk”, was her reply. Cohen has created something wonderful from it: the solo piece takes the form of a ritual deeply rooted in the Jewish tradition of keeping the memory of the deceased alive. He has thus succeeded in transforming his grief into a fantastic act of overwhelming beauty, depth and musicality.
