Sophie Blomen with Vera Moré and Max Reiniger | As part of Introducing... | Performing Arts Festival 2022

Gerhart Hauptmann's Helene shows effects of increased alcohol consumption in her own milieu and her family, from which she is unable to break away until the tragic end. Blomen, Moré and Reiniger question Hauptmann's text "Vor Sonnenaufgang" and supplement it with their own and imagined experiences, so that Helene is staged in multiple perspectives and a space is created in which identities and reality are renegotiated.

Sophie Blomen, Vera Moré and Max Reiniger know each other from their studies in Hildesheim, where they worked in changing constellations on different artistic projects. Together they question the existing theater canon in Vor Sonnenaufgang and explore the potential of telling one's own story in front of and with an audience.
