In this entertaining time-travelling fantasy, Hildegard of Bingen together with Shakespeare's Hamlet and Horatio are attending an online class at the University of Wittenberg led by their professor Hrotsvitha of Gandersheim. Hildegard is presenting a paper on Presence, and the play asks how people can be present to each other across the centuries, across the Zoom airwaves and ultimately how God can be present to the world.
