angel - Nele Vereecken

"Macht kommt von machen, etwas tun können" - Angela Merkel

Reverend’s daughter, Angela Kasner grew up in East Germany. Her aunt from West Germany often sent presents such as Levi’s jeans and a Beatles record. When the wall fell, she decided to let go of her scientific career and enter politics. "Whoever has been so positively surprised once in his life, thinks that a lot is possible", she says. Angela Kasner is a woman who exists.

angel is a performance about a woman who does not exist and who is slightly based on the real Angela: a woman who reaches the top of the world in her search for more and more possibilities. A fictional portrait based on true facts...

By dreaming the impossible, sometimes half of it becomes true. In sting we unleash the imagination on an important contemporary political figure. How far can you go in that imagination? When does the imagination become a lie, and that lie a logical reality accepted by everyone?
