Fassbinder's most frequently performed play deals with the fatal aspects of desire. It is about love in capitalism: The successful fashion designer Petra von Kant has already thrown her husband and other conventions regarding love overboard. But her new romance is also anything but a utopian place of longing. The relationships with her mistress and with her secretary reveal the true power relations. The private apartment becomes the scene of social reckoning. A virtuoso melodrama with six strong female roles, staged by French director Emilie Charriot.
