We celebrate writer Mely Kiyak, our theatre columnist.
Because an edited selection of the theatre columns which the grand master of the literary contemplation of the world created for the Gorki from 2013 to 2020 is now available as a book. Both relentless and frank, Mely Kiyak unmasks the disastrous, political and dramatic in the present. Wherever she goes, there is no safe space. The »silk embroiderer among German columnists« (jury for the Kurt Tucholsky Prize) equips her artistic resistance with brutal acumen and elegant punchlines. Always with a wildhope for glamour, humour and humanity. Enlightening, exhilarating, shocking.
Members of the ensemble, friends and companions read and celebrate.
Mely Kiyak will be connected from her chaise longue, from where she will comment on and follow the celebration live.
