Mirroring the story of King Lear and his daughters, She She Pop members take to the stage with their own aging fathers to enumerate their inheritances and negotiate how power, money, memory and love are passed along across the generations. With the drive of a game show, this heart-wrenching and humourous work strives to find the intersections of responsibility and respect between parents and children.
In German with English surtitles. Suggested age: all ages.
Founded in 1998, She She Pop is a performance collective based in Berlin and Hamburg consisting of seven permanent members: Sebastian Bark, Johanna Freiburg, Fanni Halmburger, Lisa Lucassen, Mieke Matzke, Ilia Papatheodorou and Berit Stumpf.
