Book Presentation and Talk
German playwright, essayist, theatre curator and novelist Sasha Marianna Salzmann comes to Australia for events at Melbourne & Canberra Writers’ Festivals, Sydney University and the Goethe-Institut in Sydney. She will present her most recent book Beside Myself
(German: Außer Sich
) and will be involved in talks and panels themed around gender, literature and theatre topics.
The Russian-born writer migrated to Germany in 1995 and has since then been awarded multiple accolades for her plays. Beside Myself
was shortlisted for the German Book Prize in 2017 and was translated into 15 languages. Currently, Salzmann is writer-in-residence at the Maxim Gorki Theatre in Berlin and teaches creative writing in Germany, Turkey, Moldova, Spain, Italy and the USA.
The event will be hosted by Imogen Gardam, Artistic Administrator of Bell Shakespeare. Imogen is a graduate of Media and Communications from the University of Sydney, co-founder of independent company Montague Basement and a Board Director for Theatre Network NSW.
