I’m afraid that we know each other now
ICH BEFÜRCHTE, JETZT KENNEN WIR UNS / BOJIM SE DA SE SADA POZNAJEMO
By Ivor Martinic
Theater und Orchester Heidelberg, Germany & Gavella City Drama Theatre Zagreb, Croatia

How does ageing differ due to historical and political implications? How does the collective memory of a nation and also personal memories of individuals affect the history of our lives and perceptions of our present and future? Memory is the topic that creative teams from the Gavella Theater and the Theater und Orchester Heidelberg are investigating. Award winning Croatian writer Ivor Martinić together with the German director, Miriam Horwitz, are researching how memory is being experienced in different generations, what it means for collective and personal identity, how memory is a part of our relationships, family, the political situation and our communities. With a research and work phase both in Zagreb and in Heidelberg, Ivor Martinic and Miriam Horwitz are exploring through investigative work the attempt of understanding memory as a part of our lives, framed by the present, the use and the abuse of it. The play, as an outcome and documentation of their mutual research, will be staged twice: once with an artistic team in Heidelberg and once with an artistic team in Zagreb. The two teams had the chance to meet and discuss during a week-long workshop, held in Zagreb in February 2014. Both productions will be on show in Zagreb and in Heidelberg by 2015.
