The play “Post Quartet” happens chronologically after the end of the drama Quarter by Heiner Müller, when the Woman (Merteuil) remains alone. Wishing to find out why she is so helpless, the Woman recreates emotions, experiences and situations with her body, which brought her to a (un)familiar space. She is in the role of, and in conflict with the Spirit of space which at times instigates, and at other times watches over the entire play. The music is performed live on stage and it helps the Woman prepare for her transition into her new Life. The audience creates their own theater inside their minds based on the images of the play.
