The Last Dreams of Helene Weigel or How to Get Rid of The Feminism Once and For All
The Last Dreams of Helene Weigel or How to Get Rid of The Feminism Once and For All is an experimental, documentary opera following Helene Weigel, Bertolt Brecht's wife and "the greatest actress who ever lived" as she snaps the neck of a wild swan, escapes robbery by door-to-door linoleum salesmen, and makes covert visits in her dreams to the nunnery cell of Heloise d'Argenteuil, the 12th Century philosopher best known in light of her lover Abelard's castration. Helene is also haunted by Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz, the self-proclaimed "worst woman in the world" (also played by Andrea Suarez). Using these women as detailed examples of female constructions of self, PPL asks; is it true that women conceive themselves as a pattern of interconnections? Is "construction of self" a concept constructed by a male-centric philosophy of being? How have women felt about being women? Is one woman representative of every woman?
