I need a hero
von Camilla Pölzer
Age 9 and over / Year 4 and above
Venue: TANZKOMPLIZEN im Podewil
Don’t we all want to be a hero? Strong, extraordinary, able to do anything and perhaps even achieve something very special. With humorous exaggeration, joy of movement and a flowing cape, Camilla Pölzer and her partner Camilla Przystawski explore what it means for her as a woman with a disability to be a hero and to face up to societal expectations.
She fights her way through the canon of virtues of true heroes and sets out to develop her superpower. She falls, stands up again, discovers unexpected abilities and begins to rethink the term “hero”.
