It’s me, Frank is a playful invitation to immerse yourself in Frank’s world. That is the name actor Julia Häusermann calls herself at work, after Frank Levinsky from the TV series “Verbotene Liebe” (Forbidden Love). This is the starting point for a dynamic search. In it, play meets assertion, passions encounter the arts of transformation, and anger and love, sadness and joy lie on top of and next to each other.

Julia Häusermann is far more than Frank and far more than Julia. She is a medium, a performer who transforms into ghosts, pop icons, telenovela characters, machines and entertainers. She moves with every sense, mourns, grows angry and laughs from the heart. Playful, unselfconscious, appropriating and affirmative. In this sense, the evening also invites you to take a fresh look at the nature and interwoven relationships of norm and deviation, mind and nature, femininity and masculinity.
