Woman's Suffrage Centennial Celebration

On June 25th 2019 Tess participated in the Greater Boston Women's Vote Centennial project with History At Play

The event was almost sold out and received tremendous positive feedback


Most recently Tess was seen in Gloucester at the Rogers street Theater in the plays 'Early Bird Special' and 'Please Stay'

"Tess Degen, a theater artist originally from Berlin, found inspiration in stories of the Berlin Wall. Her piece, “JUMP,” again produced in collaboration with other artists, tells the true story of Helga Knittel, who jumped from a second story window to find freedom in West Berlin while she was pregnant.

“This is a kind of resistance I don’t understand,” says Degen. “That kind of jumping I can’t fathom. So I’m exploring what that means for us today.”
