She was 102 years old. It was the end of summer 2018. My grandmother made the choice to leave France to come and die in Belgium. The choice of a ‘sweet and easy’ death – euthanasia in Greek. I look back at what preceded her ephemeral exile and my memories of this difficult crossing. From the sound traces I have kept, I build a small object and dolls theatre, bring together my relatives, my friends, Dr Frankenstein and Chantal Goya, and re-create a world around my grandmother who left in a strange quietude.
