    • language no problem
  • In 2008, Janek Turkowski discovered a cardboard box containing 64 reels of 8mm film in a North German market close to the Polish border. Each reel consisted of images of the same woman, Margarete Ruhbe. Using digital and 8mm projections that he edited from the found footage, this intimate solo performance shows the story of Margarete who left an indelible impression on Janek.

    Important note: The performance is exclusively shown on location at the Trefpunt community center at Beijumerweg 17.
