By Moran Sanderovich & Veronika Boekelmann
Schwester / אָחוֹת is an encounter between four women, including the performers’ absent sisters. Both sisters were once close to them, yet both have turned towards radically different systems of belief. Veronika’s sister moved from a small town in Germany to India as a Hare Krishna devotee, while Moran’s sister decided to live in an ultra-orthodox settlement in Israel.
Within a structured dialogue, we are introduced to the daily lives of the ‘absent sisters’ by the ones before us, who create a maze of cultural choices, corporeal perceptions, and gender roles. How far are we from our sisters? How much can one really transform?
