Together with a group of German, Palestinian and Israeli actors, the Israeli writer and director Yael Ronen analyses the Gordian Knot that binds these three nations. The work scrutinises terms such as memory, guilt, perpetrator and victim and their meaning for us today and approaches the foundations upon which our personal identity within the individual national context is based.
The first phase of ›Dritte Generation‹ took place in June 2008 in Israel and Germany and a first presentation was shown at the Theater der Welt 2008 festival in Halle. The second step was a further working phase in Tel Aviv and Berlin, during which a performance was developed based on the research of the first presentation. In co-production with the Ruhrtriennale, Yael Ronen will now show the third phase of her work in progress.
