OPEN SPACES 2020: Rita Klaus

Tanzstück von Martin Hansen

“Some time ago a person lived and died. We never met this person, nor did we ever see her, not even her grave. We know she existed by what she left behind, the first thing that we learnt about her was her name, Rita Klaus. Some time ago I discovered the archive of her life. She was her own archivist, she kept everything safe and she categorised it. It was completely analogue. We found it by accident in a desert.” Rita Klaus is a new contemporary dance work by Martin Hansen. A piece for performers and ghosts. Rita Klaus drags the past to create an affective, illusory and critical take on what it means to remember, on theatre as a container for remains and on what happens in the ruins of collapsed time.
