by Herta Müller –– Directed by Niky Wolcz

Adaptation: Niky Wolcz, Valerie Seufert, Ulla Wolcz

Nadirs is a collection of short stories written by Banat born writer Herta Müller. The German State Theatre Timişoara presents the absolute premiere of the staging of one of the author's texts. At an age of maturity, the narrator remembers her childhood in Niţchidorf, her school years, the Sundays at the church, the dances and then the soirees and city experiences. She passes once more through the stations of those times and brings back to life characters from the past. She relives her own childhood fears, the arguments between her parents and the petty daily shams of the villagers by portraying them from a subjective perspective that is lacking in neither warmth nor humour.

Premiere: September 29, 2012, 7:30 p.m.
Duration: 01:45
