3 eras, 3 women: linked by Berlin, performance art, and a poem
In the 1890s young poet Erika Kieler attends the most progressive artistic salon in Berlin to perform her poem inspired by a visitor from the capital of the Ottoman Empire.
In 1989, just before the Wall comes down, punk artist Trudi Zahn performs her own version of the same poem in an East Berlin club.
And in 2009 Lottie Hoffmann prepares to perform Trudi's work at a cabaret for the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The story explores the drive for women's authentic creativity and personal freedom, cross-cultural exchange, interpretations of history, artistic influence, and a universe in which ghosts appear.
