In Gisela Elsner’s works, screws and sex toys play just as much of a role as grotesque eating rituals, wolves, and bomb-loving children. With penetrating insight, the satirist examines the shallows of the post-war period which also shape our present: excessive growth, authoritarian tendencies, the suppression of history, and inequality. Director Pınar Karabulut, a creator of sensitive, critically innovative theater, brings to the stage texts by an author who committed suicide by leaping to her death in 1992 in Munich following the failure of Communism.
