Vorwand-B is an interactive audiovisual work brought together by new technologies that combines theater, dance, music and installation. The public is part of the same space-time of the work and is invited to participate in games, sensory experiences, media interactions, rituals and reflections.
It submits a journey into oneself and into the encounter with the other through the life of a historical figure: Ruth Berlau, Bertolt Brecht’s Danish lover and collaborator, who followed him into exile and then back to Berlin, where she died in a hospital because of a fire generated by her own cigarette butt.
Although it’s not a biographical work, her history full of tragedy is an excuse to ask questions about human beings, their personal and social development, the coexistence of gender and the self-representation of subjects who live increasingly immersed in virtual realities.
