"I wanted the one thing. Someone would do it, everyone else would do it, but I believed it had to be you. I was lolling on the floor. I had small breasts that I showed to you, I showed it all. My breath rushed through my glottis as if all the spirits of the world were trapped in them and had to come out now. Once my body was unlocked, I was open, open even for the fear of death that I didn't even know yet, open always for everything. Now there are our bodies in the shadows. Your glances are disappearing more and more. And perhaps I will take a daisy and shoot you with it." Eurydice sets off like the woodcutter into the forest.

Schatten (Eurydike sagt):
with Christine Korfant about life and love in old age, without a romantic relationship, with pleasure and with the fact that the story that ageing is only possible in pairs is one story of many. A road movie on stage.

Schatten (Eurydike sagt):
is a play by Elfriede Jelinek. In it, Elfriede Jelinek rewrites the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice: What if Eurydice did not want to return to Orpheus from the underworld? What if the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice is one of many cultural testimonies that are supposed to prove: Men sing, women follow them? Christine Korfant and I fused Elfriede Jelinek's play with our biographies and with Christine's secret love for Herbert Grönemeyer.
