The stage reading presents the most recent text of the successful German playwright and actor Torsten Buchsteiner “Trauma”, published in Bulgarian in the “Homo Ludens” theatre magazine. He is known in Bulgaria for his documentary play “Nordost” that has earned him several prestigious awards and has been staged in more than 12 countries.
“Trauma” is focused on the complex nature and relationships between two women. Verena runs a crisis centre for women who have been victims of domestic violence and Kitty teaches hip-hop classes at a fitness studio. They meet by chance and discover that they share a similar difficult past. They must come a long way to the mutual trust in order to reveal their trauma. After the reading the spectators are invited for a talk with the team and the author.
