Netze (Veronica Compagnone (Zenobia Theater))
"The night weaves around our tent. I hear my heartbeat. I hear the darkness. We are heartbeats while the night is asleep..."
Netze is about a journey which, for many women, consists of violence, injustice, dreams and hopes. Actor Sophie M. Ammann embodies the experiences and fates of different, refugee women who are forced to leave their homeland in search of a new one. Rachel Maio musically accompanies the performance, merging the sound of the cello and her own voice with a loop machine. Inspired by current events, director Veronica Compagnone brings to the stage the tragic odyssey that migrant women go through on the road of despair.

Created in the summer of 2016, the company was formed to realise the theatre piece, Netze. Powerful, uncompromising, sad and touching images take the audience on an emotional and abstract experience of actual life-realities in our close environment. The ensemble is concerned with the aesthetic telling of stories whilst preserving the dignity of the women, whose destinies are negotiated on the stage.
The ACUD Theatre in Berlin's Mitte district has been a place for young, innovative and diverse theatre since 1990, building bridges between acting, dance, performing art, clowning and puppetry.
