Playing Martha

  • Martha spielen (German title)
Video Installation | 2016 | Austria

Brief synopsis

Fragmentary reenactment of the 720º scene from Martha by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. The renowned camera shot is transformed into an installative performance with 6 performers and their particular interpretation and enactment of Martha, actually their individual mode of slipping into a role by putting on the figure's costume.
