Rimini Protokoll (Haug/Wetzel), with surtitles for deaf people
When Maria-Cristina jumps headfirst into a swimming pool after having passed her A level, her life abruptly changes: Paralyzed from the shoulders downward, she is confronted with the question of whether she wants to continue living. “I certainly did. I live with my head raised cheerfully. This play will focus on how my graduation became the beginning of my journey through life. I will play the world and show the extent to which I am a whole person. I will talk with women who are expecting a child, with geneticists who test the quality of evolving life. I will ask my nursing staff to gesticulate for me. I will raise questions about what man is. I will give my answers. I will laugh without technical support: I smile – often.”
