A farewell film to the theatre of Greiz. The buildings destruction in 2011 was transferred into the medium of documentation itself: About 120 film slides depict different phases like dilapidation, squalidness, emptying, demolition. The individual slides were destructed as well - with methods like bleaching, burning and corroding. While the theatre decomposes bit by bit, the images of its demolition vanish as well.
