ABOUT DAMN TIME tells of lonely and difficult hours alone in our room. When too many thoughts take on too much weight. When the future overwhelms you, love crushes you. When we mourn - for lost time and missed adventures.

Where to put the anger?

Why does it feel so good to cry?

And when does life finally begin?


Poetically and melancholically, Eva Borrmann creates a performative diary in close collaboration with pupils from the Nettetal comprehensive school that tells of growing up and gives a place to the sad and stormy moments. In the process, we discover friendships that hold us up and carry us a little. We meet people who want to share the winter with us, music that takes us away - SHAKE IT OFF!


The production was created by young people for young people.
