T4. OPHELIAS GARTEN is the German premiere of a play by Pietro Floridia that dissects the Nazi murder operation T4. Between azaleas and lilies, Ophelia (Neele Buchholz), with the help of nurse Gertrud (Maja Zećo), tries to escape the headquarters of those bureaucrats and doctors who decided on life and death at Tiergartenstraße 4, Berlin, according to ideological standards of "economic usefulness."
The production by David Stöhr and ensemble thereby deals with the question of how the crime against mentally ill, mentally and physically handicapped as well as "racially" and socially undesirable persons can be portrayed from a position of consternation.
