The Kosovar performance “Carla Del Ponte…” will be shown in Hamburg

The theater performance “Carla del Ponte trinkt in Pristina einen Vanilla Chai Latte”, after the successful premieres in Prishtina an Dusseldorf, now will be shown in Hamburg (Germany) at Kampnagel theater, in the frame of the International Festival “KRASS Kultur Crash”.

“Carla Del Ponte…” in Hamburg will take place on April 29th and April 30th from 7:30 pm.

The director of this performance is the well known German choreograph Jochen Roller, the text has been written by Jeton Neziraj and the play is performed by the well-known Kosovar actors: Agnes Nokshiqi, Alketa Sylaj, Donikë Ahmeti, Lyra Xhoci e Vjosa Abazi

In this drama the main protagonist is “Carla del Ponte” who travels to Kosovo to pursue the criminal organ trading in Kosovo. In a short break she visits the Starbucks Café in Pristhina and gets surprised by the fact that her favorite drink, the Vanilla Chai Latte, tastes the same as in Europe.
This incident triggers a rant about the failed liberalism of Europe’s old democracies, the pornographic appeal of Western capitalism, organ trade and the superiority of Swiss knives.
Choreograph Jochen Roller puts the text of Jeton Neziraj together with five prominent actresses, who play in English language, into motion and puts the whole performance in a fast-paced choreography. The actresses are changing between the roles of Carla del Ponte, Madeleine Albright, the desperate German Woman, Marina Abramoviq, Mother Teresa, organ-seeker, organ-donor, Ulay, Bill Clinton, Elez Nikçi and the brother of Carla del Ponte.
“Carla Del Ponte trinkt einen Vanilla Chai Latte in Prishtina” is a dazzling performance of ever-changing perspectives and a choreography of contracting attitudes. It’s danced propaganda about the persuasiveness of ideology – fast, furious, tragic and funny.

The costumes for the play are made by Sebastian Ellrich, the lights are made by Marek Lamprecht and Denis Berisha. The play has been produced by Qendra Multimedia and FFT Dusseldorf. It’s financed by the Robert-Bosch-Stiftung/Szenenwechsel, Nationales Performance Netz Germany and Goethe Institut. Qendra Multimedia is supported by Dhe European Union Office in Kosovo.
