Acclaimed Viennese actor Maxi Blaha presents a solo performance exploring the life of the companion and muse to Gustav Klimt.  Emilie Flöge was a fashion designer who, with her sisters, ran a successful salon.  This theater piece, written by Penny Black, imagines the career and loves of this fascinating woman, who was an integral part of the cultural scene in Vienna around 1900.
