Barton • Redfern, Stoll • based on Anton Tschechows „Drei Schwestern"

"I don't know why my soul is so bright! This morning I remembered that it's my birthday, and suddenly I was glad and remembered the childhood days: the summer days at Wannsee, carousel rides at the German-American Folk Festival, shopping at the mall on Clayallee. Eating banana splits with Dad."


It's Ivy's twenty-first birthday. To celebrate, Sister Masha has invited a surprise guest: Father Andrew is coming back to Germany after years. The eldest sister Olivia does not like this at all. But the reunion raises many questions: Would life have been different with him as a black identification figure? Would the sisters have been happier in the USA? How does one acquire an identity, where does one feel one belongs, and when is one actually "German"? Are Asians allowed to play classical music or is that appropriation? And who is actually allowed to play Chekhov? A modern Three Sisters overwriting.

The collective Glossy Pain works in changing constellations with international artists. Glossy Pain focuses on feminist, anti-capitalist and anti-racist issues. Following Audre Lorde, the collective sets itself the task of liberating eroticism as a force from the clutches of patriarchy and using it as a motor to create a utopia of free, collaborative work far from hierarchical, patriarchal structures.

Let's unfuck the patriarchy out of our bodies!
