“To watch how Brit Rodemund falls out of the world ... is both deeply moving and unsettling, and has an intensity that is not easy to bear… a magnificent performance.” Sabine Wagner, Thüringische Landeszeitung

Helena Waldmann is a stage magician, questioning conventions, her work sensual and thought-provoking. Compelling, bizarre and funny, Get a Revolver explores the social stigma of dementia – while it doesn’t aim to elicit sympathy, it hits us hard with our own preconceptions. Superb dancer Brit Rodemund, a classical ballerina with dazzling presence, gives a poignant face to memory loss.

Note: Mature themes. Spoken word sections performed in German with English and French surtitles.

Performance is approximately 1 hour with no intermission.
