Inspired by true events, the dance theater production “Ghost Girls” deals with the history of the Radium Girls, which began about 100 years ago in the USA. At that time, the chemical element radium, which had not been known for very long, was in great demand at that time and was even considered to be beneficial to health. The Radium Girls worked with a radium-containing paint without any protection, undreamt-of possible consequences.
In Kristin Mente’s debut work, contemporary dance in combination with rap, live music and the history of the Radium Girls is used as a basis for questioning how today’s society deals with novelties on the market, occupational safety measures and occupational diseases.
