No hasty conclusions, please, but one thing seems to become obvious very quickly: this body is actually dead, as dead as the undead in zombie movies. Perhaps "Mademoiselle x" only imagines that she is a living corpse but she must push this state through a phase of insight-like provocation. The young and internationally already extremely active Estonian performer Maria Metsalu emerges from an icy bath that could have been brought into existence by Hermann Nitsch’s poetic forces. She has also brought candles and a great soundtrack, and she isn’t quite alone in front of the audience. But not to worry, everything is under (a certain degree of) control.

Austrian Premiere
Duration: 60 min
