Three women from the same side of the Carpathian Mountains, belonging to different generations, meet in Thomas Perle's performance, winner of the 2019 austrian Retzhofer Drama Prize: daughter, mother and grandmother. In different languages and dialects, they recount their German-Austrian-Hungarian-Romanian destinies, which are embedded in political altercations and stories characterized by violence over the past centuries. In a succinct and precise dialogue, Perle covers the entire historical period from German immigration during the 18th century to national socialism, the fall of Ceausescu and the longing for a different life in the West. Even the mountains and forests have their say.
