die Wüste

Based on the book by the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector:

“A paixão segundo G.H.”(Die Passion nach G.H.)

The book is written in the form of a monologue by a woman, identified as G.H., recounting the crisis that ensued after she crushed a cockroach in the door of a wardrobe. The next day she writes on her own incapacity of writing about this event.

There are no steps in the drama. There is no defined beginning, neither the time nor an epilogue, there is a continuous density in the existential experience and recognition of a truth that strips the “I” of daily illusions and gives the “I” a new sense of reality. The body is a body in crisis.

The work involves actions that come from the book, which are triggered and/or enriched by sentences that we connect to the action, bringing the world of G.H. into dance on stage.
