“I’ll know how to die.” As Dutch femme fatale and spy Mata Hari is imprisoned, awaiting death by firing squad, she reflects on her life. Verbatim narrative based on actual letters and interviews, this illumination of a legendary woman is interspersed with songs and dance by cabaret performer Aletia Upstairs. At the heart of this piece we see Mata Hari’s art, inspired by Indonesian temple dance.
