Tess premiered her solo piece "JUMP"
"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.'" - Hannah Chanatry, ARTery
