Aglaja Veteranyi (*1962) comes from a Romanian family of circus artists. In 1967, the family migrated from Romania to Switzerland. In Zurich, Aglaja Veteranyi learned the written and spoken German language and trained as an actor in Zurich. Nino Haratishvili (*1983) comes from Georgia and came to Germany with her mother during the Georgian civil war. Later she moved back to Tbilisi and founded a German-Georgian theatre group. Today she is an award-winning novelist and theatre director and lives in Germany. Her great family epic "The Eighth Life (For Brilka)", translated into 25 languages, became a worldwide bestseller, and a major international film adaptation is in preparation.

In the guest performance of the Landestheater Marburg, the voices of the two women merge into a theatrical experience. Aglaja Veteranyi's novel "Why the Child Cooks in Polenta" shows the life of a family of artists from the perspective of a child. Every day, the troupe performs a tightrope act full of merciless hope for a different future. In a world in which bodies count, illusion and appearance are inscribed and hope is great. Life seems to be a perpetual stranger and on the move that has shaped the young woman. Nino Haratischwili has composed a polyphonic theatre evening with a bilingual ensemble from this story. On an opulent revolving stage, the production moves between dream and reality, splendour and softened earth, between childhood and adulthood.
