Since November 2018 Zarina Tadjibaeva is on the road with her one-woman show. After sold-out performances in Zurich, her tour through Switzerland will continue from June 2020. http://verschtehsch.net
On stage is an interpreter who translates from Russian, Persian and Tajik into German and back again.
She juggles with meanings, with cultural peculiarities, with involuntary humour, with failed and successful integration.
She immerses herself in foreign souls, dramatic fates, in the misunderstandings of everyday life. At the registry office, in court, at the psychologist, in hospital.
Zarina Tadjibaeva draws on her many years of experience as a translator in her fictional character.
Nothing is foreign to her. The gossipy Persian, the Russian drama queen, the arrogant civil servant, the disoriented applicant - before our eyes and ears a cosmos spreads out that makes us laugh and cry.
Zarina plays, sings, dances, operates the laptop and controls the light. Curtain up!
