STAGE OF DEATH II
Stage of Death II took place at various weekly markets in Berlin. In the midst of market stalls and self-constructed stands the performance was integrated into everyday events. Carima Neusser and the artist Carola Uehlken were staging a still life performance inspired by a guided tour into the underworld as described in the famous baroque poem “Schaubühne des Todes” from the 17th century. Living and dead material merge into a Tableau Vivant. Bodies lie and move in and around a shabby car near the busy market scene selling fruit and vegetables. The audience is invited to witness the various physical processes between life and death while picnicking.
