Description

Ranging from affection to melancholy, Ursina Lardi plays herself in the dialogue with a woman reaching the end of her life.

The original inspiration came from Jedermann by Hugo von Hofmannsthal featuring an encounter with an allegory of death. Here Everywoman is an encounter between Ursina Lardi and Helga Bedau, a woman who knows that she is reaching the end of her life. The two women converse in an unsettling and strikingly dramatic dialogue: the actor on stage and the other woman present via a video screen. The dichotomy lets Milo Rau invite the audience to embark on the heroine’s journey leading to the inescapable end, yet the focus remains on support, keeping company, expressing affection, sharing, without ever denying death, and thus making it more human.
