Kulturhaus Karlstorbahnhof, Heidelberg
Hildegard is ambitious. She fought in a war, sang songs, exposed her left breast, and cut if off. She can tell you what it means to be a woman in Berlin, a city in seventy-seven year limbo between destruction, rubble and capitalism. Amongst the ruins of her past and a nation ravaged by war, HILDEGARD/KNEF explores a world of death, destruction and music, where everything is under occupation by memories.
April Albert is an international theatre maker, performer and lecturer. She specialises in creating politically engaged performance in a range of contexts and settings. Her solo performance work explores how the historical and cultural resonates in our current social and political experiences.
