The solo project Was bleibt deals with the phenomenon of creation and ephemerality. What do we create in the short time given to us in the world? What remains – as something tangible or as a memory? And does it still exist if no one sees it? The piece examines the transience of performance and, with the help of dance, text and objects, pursues the question of what happens when everything comes differently than expected.
