https://nac-cna.ca/en/event/5513

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.

“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
