Death Moves Among Us
While early Dances of Death marked a fundamental distinction between the mortal humans and Death Itself, in the 20th and 21st centuries these identities and roles have blurred. In some cases, Death interacts with the living—wearing their clothes and taking part in their daily routines. In other cases, human figures wear Death’s face themselves. This raises the question, does Death disguise itself to blend it or do the living sometimes play a fatal role in their own lives and the lives of others? Either way, Death is seen as a constant companion of the living.
