Artist talk following 'Berlin Diary: (Schlüterstrasse 27)'
In 1936 Dr. Max Cohnreich escapes Berlin, Germany and arrives in NYC. In 1939 he writes about his experiences in a diary intended for his as yet unborn grandchildren. In 2015 his great-granddaughter Andrea Stolowitz travels to Berlin to use the diary to explore the life he describes. After the performance the audiences are invited to discuss about the performance and to question Andrea Stolowitz about her trip to the past of her great-grandfather.
After the performance the audiences will get in dialogue with Andrea Stolowitz, Daniel Brunet and the actors of the play. Following the topic of remembering and forgetting we will talk about the creative process of 'Berlin Diary: (Schlüterstraße 27)' and have the opportunity to question Andrea Stolowitz about her trip to the past of her great-grandfather.
