ANNETTE, EIN HELDINNENEPOS

In the organizer's words:

Based on the verse epic by Anne Weber
NOMINATED FOR THE COLOGNE THEATER AWARD 2022
BRIT PURWIN AWARDED THE PUCK AS BEST UP-AND-COMING ACTRESS 2022

The real life story of Frenchwoman Anne Beaumanoir. Winner of the 2020 German Book Prize, the work deliberately places a woman at the center of a literary form usually reserved for male heroes.

Anne, called Annette, is born in Brittany in 1923. At the time of the Nazi occupation of France, Annette joins the Resistance. At the end of the 1950s, she joins the Algerians' fight for freedom against the colonial power France, has to flee France and leaves her family behind indefinitely. Her biography is rich in "big history," and that means rich in small decisions with big effects. What drives a person into the resistance? What is worth fighting for? What sacrifices does such a life demand?
