Pieter De Buysser & Maike Lond: Immerwahr

On March 10, Immerwahr will begin. Inevitable. Immerwahr is a play. It's about Midas, Ellen and their young boy Levi. This family will encounter some adventures. Immerwahr. I know the title promises a lot, not to mention it's just pretentious: Immerwahr, eternal truth and if you pronounce it badly you hear Immer war, always war, unfortunately mankind has a tendency towards bad pronunciation.

But in the hope to appease all this a tiny bit, I must just say that Immerwahr is simply the name of the woman the play is inspired by: Clara Immerwahr. The wife of Fritz Haber. Father of chemical warfare, inventor of the fertilizer that turned Bayer into the Moloch that feeds one fifth of the world's population and his military invention in WW1 that was further developed in WW2 in the form of Zyklon B. Clara Immerwahr, a brilliant chemist herself, tried to resist her husband's cocktails of war and science.
The eternal truth goes into theatre.
We will meet in the spacious lounge of the Brussels loft of Ellen and Midas. Their destiny is fatally entwined with the one of Immerwahr, but they don't know that yet. Be welcome.
