British Museum

So on November 11th we welcomed people to the afterlife from 6 until 8:30pm and it was so fun! After our weeks of preparation and a lot of trips to Whitten Timber and much help from others, we sorted out roles for everyone, Vivi and Henry were at the ticket table inviting people to take part and they flipped a coin to determine whether they went to a nice afterlife or a bad one. we had an offerings table where people drew what they would like to offer to the gods to give them a safe passage; after that, they went their separate ways to get robed and into the coffins for a short while with the lids closed. I was at the end of the performance to take the offerings which people drew for the gods and got to talk to them about the experience.

Here is the coin we used which Vivi is modelling. I made it out of Fimo painted gold from some designs drawn kindly by Brigid

Here we all are on the evening. Apparently the height order was my idea

Everyone in position waiting for the first customers
