By Alice Birch. German by Corinna Brocher
NOMINATED FOR THE COLOGNE THEATER AWARD 2020
Girl meets Boy. One might think. But what happens when in this encounter nothing is as learned? When "Girl" does not conform to social expectations and rules, but rather insists on her individuality and independence in her encounter with the opposite sex and the male-dominated world surrounding her. She does not allow herself to be owned, used, or domesticated - she does not want to procreate, marry, and even her sex belongs to her. Alice Birch's play is a feminist manifesto in four acts. A journey through women's everyday lives that reminds us how deeply our language, our mores, all our basic notions of work and private life are steeped in the legacy of violence.
Note to our viewers: "Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again." addresses sexualized violence and body shaming in some scenes. The play text uses explicit language.
