GERRON (הגדל)

Kurt Gerron was a famous actor, not only known for his interpretation of the Song Mack the Knive in the first staging of Brecht’s The Threepenny Opera, but also starring in films side by side with Marlene Dietrich. He also worked as a film director for the UFA production company

 

But in the NS-System he is „just“ a Jew. When he gets deported to Terezin he is asked to produce a film about the place, which is supposed to show the humiliating life in Terezin embellished like it’s a paradise. He is confronted with the dilemma to be able to direct once more, but therefore to play in the hands of the Nazis. This challenge pulls him more and more into his memories of his former life. As long as the camera is rolling, the actors won’t be deported

 

For the first time director Annette Gleichmann  adapted the novel Gerron by Charles Lewinsky for the stage. The book was nominated for the National Literature Award in Switzerland in 2014. The production features beautiful puppet theatre as well as fine acting, which combines in a very touching and poetical way

What is left of a man, who is forced to collaborate with his tormentors to survive? It is a maelstrom of memories and visions, of lust for life and work, of love and esparation. It is a fight for identity and legacy
