JULIANE HEINEMANN presents a very special tribute to German writer and philosopher Walter Benjamin in this musical and visual show.
The thinker of Jewish origin committed suicide in Portbou in September 1940, after painfully crossing a clandestine path to the easternmost part of the Pyrenees, from France to Portbou, fleeing from Nazism and with the idea of seeking exile in America. HEINEMANN reconstructs from her own perspective the strict path of Benjamin as a fugitive and its tragic fate. L’últim camí de Walter Benjamin (The final path of Walter Benjamin) is a journey by way of electronic music that is accompanied by poems in Catalan, Spanish and German, a live band and an important presence of visual effects: a show inspired by the figure of Benjamin which brings us closer to him on the 80th anniversary of his death.
