Schiller's powerful drama is one of the best-known interpretations of the French national myth. It tells of political calculation, religious extremism and the male view of female heroism. Johanna is first appointed a military leader, then slandered as a devil's bride, and finally stylized as a saint. The production "Johanna (to go)" takes a contemporary look at Schiller's drama and thus also illuminates how the world today looks at feisty female activists who dare to stand between the fronts.
