What remains? What counts at the end of your life? In Everywoman, a successful actress encounters a woman diagnosed with a deadly disease, whose last wish is to be in a play one more time. On the basis of the allegorical lesson Everywoman is about the right way of life and about salvation in faith. An intimate conversation begins about the past and the future - about life, death, loneliness and community.
After Compassie, the story of the machine gun (2016), for which Milo Rau and Ursina Lardi travelled to the Congo together, and after the production Lenin (2017), in which they subjected the utopias of the 20th century to intensive questioning based on the last weeks of the Russian revolutionary, Milo Rau and Ursina Lardi embark on a philosophical and existential research for Everywoman. What is this - death? Why this extreme test - alone? Why is there "nothing new to say about death", as it is said in the play? And what could be a humane, artistic answer to the scandal of all our mortality?
You ambush me in the prime of my life
and won’t grant me any delay
Tough luck. There’s no point crying or praying.
Your journey has to begin right now.
I can’t do it, not all alone.
Besides, you're asking me the impossible.
Some kind of human company
is necessary to cross this border!
