Åh jag dör!
GUEST: Åh jag dör!
A performance that examines the moment of death and the extinction or eternity of the consciousness.
My name is Anita Berber. I was born in 1899 in Germany and have lived a wonderful and wild
life as an actor and dancer. Now I have been dead for almost 100 years, and I am quite bored.
Right now I am in Helsinki and dying to meet people and to dance for you!
I came into a garden
The garden was full of orchids
From the flowers I touched and adored
Came a hand
Which smelled like sweet semen
From this sensous flowerland
The hand came closer and closer
I was “not” afraid
The fingers choked me
Five red drops fell from my lips
Åh jag dör! (Oh I’m dying!) is an intimate performance that examines the moment of death and
the extinction or eternity of the consciousness. A performance that is curious about people’s
relationship to death and how it affects how we live.
Note that there are only a few tickets on sale per performance.
