Victoria & Lies Pauwels (B): White Star

1500 Ft (Trafó bérlet érvényes)

Each and every one of them is terrified of living unnoticed. Indeed, they would all rather be someone else. Better or worse, but certainly bigger and more beautiful. They are all victims, or act as if they are. And they are all bullies, for if you hurt me then I am allowed to hurt someone too. White Star is based on the life of Lothar Berfelde (Berlin 1928-2002), a remarkable man who suddenly decided to continue his life as a woman, Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, but it does not tell us a story. It is a tender pandemonium of 10 people where mixed emotions – ranging from awful platitudes to corny abominations – are acted out. They are about injustice and powerlessness, feeling different from ‘ordinary' people, and about fighting and wanting to be accepted. It is all very dramatic.
