What remains, what counts at the end of our lives? In »Everywoman«, a successful actress meets a woman who has been diagnosed with a lethal disease, whose last wish it is to perform one last time in a play. Starting with the allegorical morality play »Jedermann« about a righteous lifestyle and redemption through faith, an intimate conversation about the past and future ensues — about life, death, loneliness and community.
After »Mitleid. Die Geschichte des Maschinengewehrs« (»Compassion. The history of the machine gun«), for which Milo Rau and Ursina Lardi travelled to the Congo together, and the production »LENIN«, in which they used the last weeks in the life of the Russian revolutionary for an intense examination of the utopias of the 20th century, Milo Rau and Ursina Lardi have undertaken philosophical and existential research for »Everywoman«.
What is death? Why this ultimate test — all alone? Why is there »nothing new to say about death«, as the play claims? And what might constitute a humane, an artistic answer to the scandalous fact of our common mortality?
