EUROPE. MY HEART WILL BE BROKEN AND EATEN
EUROPE- My Heart Will Be Broken and Eaten is a split, forked vision of Eastern and Western Europe, a historical, personal and public retrospection, a political and intimate foresight. We escort a young woman through the streets of Eastern European Cities talking to a man on the phone, restless, continuously travelling.
Their complicated long-distance love relationship – he lives in Western Europe, she lives in Eastern Europe and is trying to realise her dream of becoming an actress and hopes for a better future for herself – forms the basis of their conversation and gives illuminating insights into the divide that persists between Eastern and Western Europe.
EUROPE – My Heart Will Be Broken and Eaten is inspired by Jean Cocteau’s La voix humaine and written by the romanian author Salat Lehel. The famous German director Armin Petras who works for theatres all over Europe makes of this play a poignant piece of political art, where a strong realism incessantly interacts with at times delicate, at times disturbing poetic image. On stage, the Luxembourgish dancer Jean-Guillaume Weis meets, on screen, the Romanian actress Maria Tomoiaga.
