A new production for young people 14 + and up explores the life of Friedl Dicker and her time.
In the 1920s, many things were possible: after the First World War, Europe was on the move, a variety of new art movements emerged, women fought for new freedoms, emperors were deprived of their power and democracies were established. Friedl Dicker wanted to create, to become an artist. She made it to the famous Bauhaus, founded an architecture firm, painted and worked as an art teacher. After the Nazis seized power, she was imprisoned as a communist, then went into exile in the Czech Republic. As a Jew, she was deported - first to Theresienstadt, where she taught art to children, and then in 1944 to Auschwitz, where she was murdered.
