Fifty Shades of Meryem

In the organizer's words:

Fifty Shades of Meryem

Feature (audio play)
Leon Daniel, Yannick Kaftan, DE 2024, 54 min, German OF

"And who are you?" "Fifty Shades of Meryem." Leon Daniel and Yannick Kaftan accompany actress Meryem Öz through her life. Together, the three oscillate spatially, sonically and mentally between Hamburg and Samsun. Not so long ago, Meryem joined the ensemble at Hamburg's Thalia Theater; in the summer, they visit Meryem's family in Turkey. Meryem reflects on her life as an actress, navigating identity, the importance of family, what it means to be a Muslim woman, how she had to assimilate in order to gain a foothold in the theater industry and how she wants to get politically involved to change things. The relationship between her and the two feature makers is always part of the discussion. A radio play that leaves many images in the mind.

In cooperation with Deutschlandfunk Kultur.

Guests: Leon Daniel, Yannick Kaftan, Katrin Moll (DLF Kultur)
