Gilla Cremer – Theater Unikate

Virtual Theatre In Viral Times

Dear Companions in Fate,

I too regret with all my heart that so many shows had to be cancelled!

After all, the magic of of the stage lies in ‘real’ encounters, in a lively dialogue between actor and audience – each night is new, each night is unique.

But what is ‘real’ in these unreal times of Corona? While the theatres remain closed, as a small consolation, I would at least like to send you one of my plays that I love very much (free, of course): THE THINGS OF MY PARENTS, fresh & specially performed & filmed without an audience at Hamburger Kammerspiele.

Have you a stimulating evening, ALL THE BEST, until we meet again ‘for real’ at the theatre!

Best wishes, Gilla Cremer

Gilla Cremer - Theater Unikate

„Alone on the stage she has a compellingly clear and strong vibrancy. Even when she is not doing anything, the audience is mesmerised. This presence carries and characterises the solo performances by Gilla Cremer. The actress from Hamburg tailor-makes her own parts. On national and international tours she is celebrated for her roles as Hildegard Knef, a poor artist’s child, a concentration camp shrew, a Nazi victim’s daughter, m.e.d.e.a. and a modern woman with a career in advertising. Using few props, Cremer draws diverse psychological studies of women who – either in a positive or negative way – fight for their convictions. “ (dpa U.Cordes)
