An encounter with Clara Immerwahr-Haber, Virginia Woolf and Camille Claudel
The performance gives an insight into life and suffering of three highly gifted and strong-willed women: the sculpturess Camille Claudel, Clara Immerwahr-Haber, the first woman in Germany, who obtained a doctor`s degree in chemistry and the author Virginia Woolf.
They went after their professional visions and talents with incredibly high personal effort and courage and frustrated hereby role expectations of their time. They had to pay a high price for their differentness since creativeness and mental suffering lay close together in the lives of these famous women.
Today, hundred years after their work, we search for traces of female „insanity“ at that time and now.
