In “Not One Less More – a documentary theater play about solidarity” by Actors for Human Rights Germany, three women tell their experiences of violence. And of the endless, empowering struggle. This play does not talk about “the woman” or “about” women, but shows what was developed in collaboration with affected women and unites their voices.
Three actresses are on stage, to whom the women lend their voices. Kat Kat Tat (r a n d o m) accompanies them with a hybrid live DJ set. In conversation with one another and addressing the audience as experts as well as people, they speak openly about their lives, their activism and solidarity with one another. It becomes apparent that while more people are aware of domestic violence, society is blind to other forms of violence against women: cultural and institutional violence against women is barely part of the public debate about violence. Intersecting forms of discrimination on the basis of racism, religion, classicism, ableism and the resulting violence against women are still barely dealt with in both politics and society.
Here it is important to open up the discourse: What does violence against women mean beyond visible injuries? What does multiple violence mean? And how are the women doing?
Each performance of the play will be followed by an audience discussion with experts and activists. Performance in German and English with German, English and Turkish surtitles.
With: Aylin Esener, Elisabeth Pleß, Marie Noel, Michaela Maxi Schulz, Mirjam Barner, Neslihan Arol and DJ Kat Kat Tat
