HOW TO KILL SOMEBODY (English Version)
/ by COSTA COMPAGNIE
Towards the end of the 60’s, Monika Ertl, daughter of Riefenstahl’s famed director of photography Hans Ertl, joins the Bolivian Liberation Army. After not only Ché Guevara, but also his successor and Monika’s lover are murdered, she travels to Germany to kill the responsible Bolivian officer herself as a staged act of resistance.
The multimedia solo-performance circles the question what it means to kill a human: by virtue of political beliefs, out of love, revenge or the striving for power. At the same time the essayistic retrospect mirrors present-day events of political murder and examines how they are being instrumentalized and presented medially. Here, documentation meets an inmmersive imaginary trip.
