Klein worked for nearly twenty years as a human ‘scientific calculator’ at the international physics laboratory CERN in Geneva. But ever faster electronic calculators made him obsolete, and he entered the history books as 'the last human computer'.
Jan van den Berg (scriptt, song and acting) creates performances at the cross-section of performing arts and 'joyful science'. He says about the performance: “Like no other, Wim Klein has experienced what it means to be overtaken by advancing technology. A fate that awaits us all. I want to sing about how he lived his life to the fullest for that very reason.”
