Hannah! Das Erwachen eines politischen Bewusstsein

/Debut performance

Zeitgenössische Dramatik


The young student Hannah Arendt comes to Marburg and meets Martin Heidegger. In their shared passion for critical thought, they grow increasingly closer until their affection for each other begins to overshadow their lives. In this situation, Hannah meets her best friend, Rahel Varnhagen, who died 100 years ago. She introduces her to Jewish traditions. Hannah realizes her place as part of the Jewish community and becomes more interested in politics, but in the political climate of Germany at that time, this will soon become life-threateningly dangerous for her.
