Sophie Passmann celebrates literary self-hate


Streaming from Pfefferberg Theater, Berlin

Make sure you don’t become like everyone around you. Make sure you don’t become what you’ve already been for some time. Grow up quickly, so you can immerse yourself in the transcendental form of glorification and celebrate your youth as “the best time of your life”. In Growing Pains, Sophie Passmann takes everyone to task, but most devastatingly herself and those like her. Angry and biting, gentle and humorous at the same time, she pulls us into the depths of middle-class ennui in western Germany. “After the quarter-life crisis, that strange early middle age sets in that Sophie Passmann describes in such detail and so amusingly. That transition from ‘we own the world’ to a bourgeois lifestyle in which you suddenly take great interest in having a healthy back and enamel kitchen utensils” (Süddeutsche Zeitung). Host: Jakob Hein
