Torsten Buchsteiner:
Trauma - eine Liebesgeschichte
Staged reading with Mirjam Rast and Clelia Sarto
Roter Salon


Verena has been the director of a women's shelter for ten years. She works too much and drinks too much. One day she meets a young woman named Kitty in a bar and falls in love with her immediately. Kitty thinks women are quite stupid and that love between them is perverse. She works in a fitness studio and has self-destructive sex with a married police officer. Despite that, she meets up with Verena again and again and enjoys being wooed by her. Slowly Verena manages to gain Kitty's trust and her affection. Together they try to start over.

“Vivid, oppressive and sometimes repulsive, but incredibly intense.” (KulturExtra Hamburg)

“An ode to life in a brutal world in which women are rarely listened to or believed. (...) Both actresses are excellent.” (from Comme il vous plaira Paris in reference to the world premiere on 7 February 2018)
