Klaus is dead(2006)

“We have to open our bedrooms, distribute our correspondence among our neighbours and speak louder when riding trains.” Bazon Brock

Is it especially lively not to want to know anything about death, or is it death, which makes us feel alive?
In „Klaus is dead“ we deal with certain situations and resulting emotionally contradictory states everyone experiences sooner or later in their lives. Through the topic of death and how the living deal with it, small interpersonal situations and reactions are being looked at under a magnifying glass.

In collaboration with the performers Hanna Hegenscheidt tries to approach death while experimenting at the interface of pathos and lightness.
