Tora Augestad in Berlin
On 15 October, Tora Augestad can be seen in the world premiere of Christoph Marthaler’s Tessa Blomstedt gibt nicht auf at the Volksbühne in Berlin. The piece follows its protagonist as she makes her way through the world of online dating, constantly on the quest for the love of her life.
It becomes clear that, however much the means may have changed over the centuries, the longing to find and be found has remained the same.
Further performances: 17, 18 and 25/10, 5 and 30/11, and 7 and 26/12/2014
