Helena Waldmann (Germany)
Helena Waldmann, director, choreographer and set designer, loves to sink her teeth into taboo-breaking issues. As politically incorrect as possible. The inhuman face of European immigration (Return to sender), Japanese bondage underneath the Arab burka (Burka Bondage), to name a few. The internationally acclaimed Waldmann, taught by theater gurus like Heiner Müller and George Tabori, was also the first female western theater creator who made a critical piece about ??Islam in Iran (Letters from Tent Land, which was shown during Julidans 2005).
