At the age of twenty-six, the young British woman Anna Campbell decides to join the Kurdish freedom struggle. She leaves the safe fortress of Europe and dies in March 2018 in the Kurdish freedom struggle in Syria against the so-called Islamic State. "Political activism was in her DNA," her family says of Anna Campbell in interviews.
The live radio play Helix explores the story of this young woman who chooses struggle and unconditional international solidarity. In a polyphonic spiral of sound, there is an approach to trying to come to terms with the incomprehensibility of extremes and to connect what is too often assumed to be opposites: Feminism and war, longing and irony, pop culture and genocide.
Helix takes place within the framework of the funding project "c/o pop 2022 musichubgermany " and is supported by the Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
