About This Text
Written as a piece of autofiction, Eve Leigh’s “Midnight Movie” tells the story of a young woman who suffers from chronic pain. She spends her sleepless nights alone on the Internet, trying to escape reality tab by tab and story by story. The author skillfully combines descriptions of her own condition with stories from various Internet forums. “Midnight Movie” is a text of great sensitivity and poetry and reaches people whose physical absence in the theatre generally remains unquestioned.
We would like to thank Münchner Kammerspiele / Habibi Kiosk for their friendly support in connection with the implementation of the live stream.
