Once upon a time there was a fan from Thuringia. He was enchanted by a famous tennis player from West Germany. But one day, a nasty, moaning opponent from Yugoslavia appeared on the scene…
In April 1993, a big fan of Steffi Graf stabbed the then world’s best tennis player, Monica Seles, in the back, on camera. “I just wanted to make her unable to play so that Steffi would be first again,” he says afterwards. His plan worked. Seles never finds her way back to her old strength, Graf becomes number one again and he is sentenced to two years probation. »Ein Fan aus Thüringen« tells the story of attack and his protagonist in the context of the global political events in the early 1990s. Caught in fairy tale structures and media red threads, Sophie Hutter and Werner Eng seek ways out of the narratives of good and evil, East and West, perpetrator and victim.
In his work as a director Demjan Duran deals with his country of birth, Yugoslavia. By researching the past, he digs out themes into and for today, and places them in an overall social context. »Ein Fan aus Thüringen« is his first piece in Berlin.
