Too low terrain

4F / 1M

The house under the approach path of the airport is sold. Soon a 17 year old Russian girl will be moving in, a student of dentistry, with Jacuzzi and mini bar. One last time before leaving, the grown up daughters and their mother sit together, in a drizzle of kerosene, surrounded by rotting furniture and exploding appliances, and are recapitulating the past and present. Laconic, tender and yet full of humor is how Lisa Danulat tells about family love and sibling rivalry, the disintegration of hopes and bodies, of airplane hijackings, crash warnings that were always late, about life passing by and death showing up uninvited on each family picture. Too Low Terrain won the award for best play and best production at the writer's festival "Text trifft Regie" (text meets direction) in Mainz 2008.
