CASCADE by Jim Grimsley

In Jim Grimsley’s new play, a daughter and her father travel north from the South of the U.S. in the near future to escape from the uninhabilitable hot regions there. On their way, they meet another partial family and finally decide to travel on together into an uncertain future.

In a dense and threatening atmosphere, the play approaches the migration aspect of the climate catastrophy, postulating that we will only be able to master this troublesome journey with the help of trust and solidarity.

The German translation from English was accomplished by Henning Bochert.

BDÜ Mentor – for the second time

After its 2022/2023 cycle, Henning Bochert commits himself for a second time in the mentoring programme of the BDÜ as a mentor in the 2022/2023 cycle. In this programme, six experience mentors support six mentees on their way to working freelance. The pairs are switched every four months in order to allow for each mentee to work with each mentor for one trimester. For the mentors, this volunteer work is a great opportunity to get to know new perspectives and professional approaches.
