With “The Moving Stories of Mobile Women” (working title), the Chemnitz Figure Theater and the project team are now dealing with the history of the contract workers of the GDR. Interviews will be conducted, documents sifted through and life paths traced. In the area of tension between work – women – migration, the production focuses on female biographies and approaches the different perspectives and experiences in a dialogue between the generations. This material will be used to create a theater production that will premiere as part of the interdisciplinary network project “Kein Schlussstrich!” and will be accompanied by an extensive framework and educational program in cooperation with Chemnitz women, didacticians, historians, cultural actors and a nationwide network.

Planned premiere date: November 6, 2021

Venue: Figurentheater Chemnitz
