« Never again, never again, never again I fuck up » – Switzerland

Theatre play in the penitentiary Berlin-Tegel, Germany.
The prisoners perform the “Hermann Battle”, a 19th century play about the historical battle between the Cheruscan prince Arminius (Hermann) and the Roman army under Varus in 9 AD.
Because of a certain glorification of the Teutons, the play was little performed. But when the Germanic tribes are played by people of colour, this nationalism is already broken.
But since it is also a play about freedom, it fits perfectly into the context of the penal institutions.
It is remarkable that the report was broadcasted on the second most important news programme of the German Channel One
