THE POSTER/PROGRAMME



THE PLAY’S PATH

LENI RIEFENSTAHL. OBLIVION EPISODES

Man of the Year 1938 of "Time" weekly, Adolf Hitler. Nazi. Reich Minister of Public Enlightment and Propaganda Goebbels with his wife. Nazis. Heinrich Hoffman, photographer, author of Odeonsplatz picture (with Hitler, 1914). Also Nazi. Applause. They visit Leni Riefehstahl – author of famous "Triumph of the Will". Standing ovation.

Will Hitler ask her to make a new film? Will Leni yield to Hitler’s will? Will our guests talk ab out cultural policy? Will they say at least one small word on final solution?

These questions try to answer Sophie and Hans Scholl, members of anti-Nazi organisation Weisse Rose. They will be directed by no other but Jelinek. Elfriede Jelinek. Amnesia, denial and illiteracy special agent.

Performance for adult spectators.
Performance is presented in Wilson Sfaft Gallery Building, Oswobodzenia Street 1, Katowice.

MEDIA ON THE PLAY

This is a show with actual connotations, touching a timeless problem. – Did you think who comes into the history when you go out from it? – Elfriede Jelinek asks film director working for Hitler. (…) Performance "Leni Riefenstahl. Oblivion Episodes" directed by Ewelina Marciniak was produced with the same panache as that of documents "Triumph of Will" and "Olympia" promoting Hitler’s politics, innovative for their camera’s work and edition.
