In the context of this reading, actors who are known as TV detectives from Tatort and Polizeiruf 110, among others, focus on the Mediterranean Sea.
Peter Kurth, Anna Schudt, Heike Makatsch, Nina Kunzendorf, Daniel Sträßer, Stefanie Reinsperger, Hans-Jochen Wagner and others will read reports from rescuers and those rescued, as well as excerpts from a documentary about violations of the law on the Mediterranean Sea, which were witnessed and recorded by the Search & Rescue crews of the rescue ships.
The reading Tatort Mittelmeer is intended to make the unheard heard. It will be musically accompanied by Palestinian-Syrian pianist Aeham Ahmad, who received the "International Beethoven Prize for Human Rights" in 2015.
Tatort Mittelmeer is a co-production between the civilian sea rescue organization SOS Humanity and the Deutsches Theater Berlin, in order to jointly draw attention to the humanitarian emergency situation on the Mediterranean Sea, which has been ongoing for years, and to collect donations for the life-saving missions of the rescue ship "Humanity 1".
SOS Humanity, until the end of 2021 SOS Mediterranee Germany, is committed to a world in which the human rights of all are respected. SOS Humanity stands for humanity at sea and on land. The association is committed to ensuring that no more people have to drown while fleeing and that everyone is treated with dignity. With the rescue ship Humanity 1, it has been saving lives on the Mediterranean Sea since August.
