WENN DU DEIN LEBEN AUSHALTEN WILLST, RICHTE DICH AUF DEN TOD EIN. – Sigmund Freud
AFTERLIFE is a explosive and intimate story about love and sudden death told through dance and electronic music.
Based on real events, AFTERLIFE is inspired by the love stories of Lillian’s and Tom’s parents, both of which ended tragically when their fathers died unexpectedly. AFTERLIFE is about the spark that connects equals, the stamina and risk it takes to love, and a journey that ends in an instant.
AFTERLIFE will premiere in March 2021 at a unique, new location in Basel, Switzerland in a unique format that goes beyond stage performance.

The Dj Duo Schwifi is comprised of two women from Basel, Ada Fischer and Sophia Schwager, who have been active in the Basel music and culture scene for over three years. Their DJ sets move within a broad spectrum of electronic music styles, especially those with a great beat and with a lot of bass. Not only a common passion for music but also a passion for movement connects the two. They met over 10 years ago when they toured through Switzerland together with a youth circus. With AFTERLIFE they are able to connect these two passions in a new context. Their DJ sets can be heard regularly at Basel venues such as Humbug, Kaserne or smaller locations like Nebel or 1. Stock.
