About the event

Radiation. Nuclear fission. Frequency hopping.
In the thater play “Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible“ the Viennese ensemble portraittheater brings the lives and works of three extraordinary women to the stage:

The double Nobel Prize winner and discoverer of radioactivity Marie Curie (1867-1934), the Austrian-Swedish nuclear physicist Lise Meitner (1878-1968) and the Viennese Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr (1914-2000) with the invention of frequency hopping. All three are outstanding pioneers representing the achievements of women in the field of science and technology.

The play shows their passion for science and technology, the obstacles and barriers these women had to face in their work environment as well as the great joy and fascination they gained through their research and inventiveness.

Actress Anita Zieher, who impersonates the three women, delivers a stunning performance in the roles. The play, directed by Sandra Schueddekopf provides an entertaining and vivid performance, raising questions about female career paths that are still valid. The play was a great success in Austria and on tours in Europe, Australia and in the United States. Illustrated with music and videos with three girls the one-woman-performance shows an entertaining portrait of extraordinary women in history.
