Jessica Hajdu-Nemeths international debut and a transatlantic collaboration between artists in New York and Germany.
Die Zofen or in English, The Maids, inspired by a notorious 1933 murder when two maids brutally killed their employers, collapses fantasy and reality. It is a play of heiratic roles, all of them ultimately cruel: the two maids, Solange (Denitsa Stoyanova) and Claire (Nina Heithausen), act out their sadistic mistress-servant fantasies and their social roles as servants; Madame (Janka Tara Horstmann) her performances as tyrant, beneficient employer and lover.
The Plan: Die Zofen's International Team will raise half the budget through online donations in order to expand our fundraising pool. Our fundraising efforts in the US will join with our European funding efforts to create a trans-atlantic production. The team has been a partnership between Clare doing production work in the US and the creative team rehearsing in Germany. Your efforts will help with the director, Jessica's, full-length international debut.
Jean Genet's Die Zofen will be performed in;
