Berlin-Premiere: And Now Hanau

On February 19th, 2020, a racist murdered nine people in Hanau: Fatih Saraçoğlu, Gökhan Gültekin, Hamza Kurtović, Kaloyan Velkov, Mercedes Kierpacz, Said Nesar Hashemi, Sedat Gürbüz, Vili Viorel Păun and Ferhat Unvar. Together with the »Initiative 19. Februar Hanau«, the playwright, director and doctor Tuğsal Moğul poses questions in And Now Hanau about the many mistakes the police, the public prosecutor’s office, politicians and the media made before, during and after the attack. The perpetrator from Hanau escaped a trial and conviction by taking his own life; no legal proceedings will take place. That is why Moğul deliberately chooses public venues at the heart of city life: we are presenting And Now Hanau first in the Willy-Brandt-Saal in the city hall in Schöneberg and then in Studio Я for two more performances. To accompany the performances, a series of events will be held in cooperation with the »Initiative 19. Februar Hanau« and the German Trade Union Confederation.

The Berlin premiere at Schöneberg City Hall takes place in cooperation with the respective district representatives for people with disabilities, for participation and integration, and for queer lifestyles and against right-wing extremism, as well as the women's and equal opportunities commissioners.
