On 15 January 1974, a bed goes up in flames at the East Berlin hospital Charité. The patient who dies in this fire, caused by a burning cigarette is Ruth Berlau, Danish communist and Bertolt Brecht’s lover. But who was this extraordinary woman who founded a theatre at the age of 24, learned photography and worked with Brecht on his "Caucasian Chalk Circle"? This hybrid-immersive performance by the German-Swiss collective RAUM+ZEIT combines virtual reality with live acting by three protagonists. Equipped with a pair of VR-goggles, the spectators enter a scenic installation one by one, coming very close to Ruth Berlau and Bertolt Brecht, both live and in the virtual realm.
