Billie Eilish’s position is clear: We need to talk about the world. She does it in her singular style, communicating through her art in a very personal way. The Golden Gorkis, the oldest theatre club in Germany, wants to do the same thing. Thus, the »Grandparent Generation« took inspiration from Billie’s debut album, from her music, her texts, to create spaces for these topics. Because we have to do more than just talk about the world, first and foremost we need to change it. In this Billie is not just a role model, but also a sign of hope that, together, we can work it out.
