seven cooks, four soldiers and three sophias
This play has a distinctively specific structure, a particular playfulness, it connects history and fiction. The script is dedicated to three historical personalities: Sophia Magdalene Scholl, a German political activist, Sofia Lvovna Perovskajeva, a Russian “terrorist” and Marie-Sophie Germain, a French scientist. Destinies of three exceptional women who all left a significant mark in the history of humankind. A German, a Russian and a French woman all lived in different centuries and countries, but they shared similar destinies and the same given name. They were fearless activists and intellectuals who spent their whole lives fighting violence, ignorance and inequalities of all kinds. They all paid a high and cruel price for their beliefs. (Scholl and Perovskaja were both sentenced to death.) In a unique universe real-life information is spoken about these personalities whilst the play remains faithful to the realms of its field: fiction. This is a story about a tight chain of friends: passiveness, fear of the different, execution, war and finally history and the past.
