“Subject: YOU/ME/US“, an 80-minute solo performance about the relationship between a queer grandfather and granddaughter in English language by Elly Jarvis and Lilli Strakerjahn. The piece celebrated its premiere at Hin und Weg Festival Litschau, Austria 2021.
2015: In Berlin, Elly has her coming out and so does her conservative grandpa Dix – but in Michigan. She is 23, he is 92. To Elly this is a sign of magic – proving life to be much more surprising than she had originally thought. These former strangers strike up an e-mail correspondence about queerness and sexuality. Seven years and 300 e-mails later, their conversation is ongoing. “Subject: YOU/ME/US” is an insight into the desire to connect, the role of terms and categories in identity, and the challenge of maintaining boundaries in family structures.
