World Premiere
15. Januar 2022, 35. Stuttgarter Filmwinter – Festival for Expanded Media
How can and do we want to live together? In 1972, Rainer Werner Fassbinder made “The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant”. The result is a radical film about power structures. 50 years after the film's release, choreographer and dancer Louis Stiens addresses the questions raised by Fassbinder's film. In doing so, he created w work of nightmarish depth, which, in addition to the interpersonal level, explores the interaction of man and space. In a duet of oppressive closeness, two people meet in a confined space. Their fateful touches overlap with spoken film quotes, male bodies and female voices intermingle. "Humans are made in such a way that they need one another. But they have not learned how to exit together," Fassbinder famously sai.

A commissioned production as part of the 35th Stuttgart Filmwinter - Festival for Expanded Media.
