“You must learn to extend your elbows now!” This post-reunification mantra had a decisive impact on 13-year-old Tanja Krone at the time and marked the end of the GDR for her. Almost 30 years later, she asks her family, teachers and school friends about their everyday life during the time of reunification. What shifts did the system change bring about in their lives? In a “polyphony of scepticism about the present and idealization of the past” (Der Tagesspiegel), three women from two generations reveal layer after layer of histories. Using synthesizers and mixtapes, Krone invents the accompanying soundtrack and carefully creates something new.
TANJA KRONE is a director, performer and musician whose projects deal with art as a space of possibility and participation of various protagonists. Her performances in the past have ranged from the founding of the world's largest women's rock band to the invention of utopian states in Africa and the creation of a modern youth Salvation Army in Berlin. Since summer 2017 she has been touring European cities with The European House of Gambling, an international group of performers and do-gooders, to find out if a gambling community is also a just one.
