Shadows of Memory
What do we remember? And what don't we? In his play "Heldenplätze", author and director Calle Fuhr links an invented character - Theresa, embodied by Gerti Drassl - with the real story of Toni Sailer. Theresa has actually long since made peace with her bleak childhood in the Salzburg countryside and the early accidental death of her beloved brother Pepi, but now she dares to tell her story. Together with her brother, who wanted to become a skier, Theresa had one idol above all: Toni Sailer. Not only was he a legend and national hero as a skier, he also made a career as an actor and pop singer. And when his film "Der schwarze Blitz" was on TV, Theresa's family sat together in harmony. But in 2018, nine years after Sailer's death, serious rape allegations from 1974 against Sailer are being reopened. And Theresa must ask herself at whose expense she maintains her happy memories.
In Calle Fuhr's play about the longing for role models, about cover-ups and the pain of remembering, journalism meets theatre. "Gerti Drassl brings a moving one-woman show to the stage, skilfully revealing Theresa's fickle states of mind." (Wiener Zeitung)
