Bernadette is a 'system crasher'. This term is used to describe children who break every single rule; children who refuse to accept any kind of structure and who gradually fall through the cracks in Germany’s child and welfare services. Nora Fingscheidt has created an intense drama about one child’s overwhelming need for love and security and the potential for violence that this engenders.

July Recap: Last month we were all about floors! We’ve been prepping them with engineered carpet gripper, then added carpet pad to avoid creaking and make them all in all more sound proof, and finally laid down carpet. Multicolor bronze for the second and third floor as well as the stairs and hallways and a lively orange for the fourth floor. Also, the metal work has been painted, including the banister in the main staircase and the front door. Last but not least, the elevator guys are braving the heat, dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s to update the elevator.
