Mütter und Söhne
Why do young people become radicalised? In Germany as well as world-wide, new and old right-wing extremists are stirring up hatred against minorities and foreigners. They preach violence and promote a toxic, militant masculinity. Who are these young people and what do they want? Do certain familial constellations facilitate their radicalisation? What are the roles of mothers in all of this, or of fathers? How do mothers deal with the radicalisation of their children? Based on interviews and conversations with experts, director Karen Breece will develop a text on this issue and stage it together with the company.
“Corinna Kirchhoff and Bettina Hoppe are convincing as suffering mothers who are also prepared to fight.”
“Karen Breece lets us look into this family’s abysses, setting up a kind of sociological test arrangement.”
"Corinna Kirchhoff und Bettina Hoppe überzeugen als leidende und doch auch kampfbereite Mütter."
