Only a fully realized emotion is worth be seen on stage


Since 2016 she moved back to the city where she spent her last school years, Düsseldorf in Germany. She continues to combine in her everyday life all of the aspects of theatre and creativity. Her proudest writing work is the story of the american journalist George Polk, who was murdered under mysterious ways in her birthplace Thessaloniki, Greece 1948. Although George Polk is a big issue and countless books have been written, trying to bring some light to the case, Angelina Galbeni's story was the first theatre play ever written and played about George Polk.


Griechische Erstaufführung von “Angst verboten”!


Ab 25. März 2015, Paramithias Theater, Athen. Regie: Angelina Galbeni.

Lukas Holligers am Schauspiel Bremen uraufgeführtes Theaterstück “Angst verboten” in der griechischen Übersetzung von Angelina Galbeni.


Basellandschaftliche Zeitung, 25.3.2015:
Neben dem Thema sei es die Sprache
des Autors, so die Übersetzerin und Regisseurin,
welche sie von Anfang an fasziniert
habe. Deren Lakonie und Präzision
schätze sie, und der schwarze Humor
brächte sie bis heute zum Lachen. Wie
der Basler, mit dem sie seit zwei Jahren in
E-Mail-Kontakt steht, betrachtet sie die im
Stück zu Tage tretende Lächerlichkeit der
Angst als Schlüssel zum Verständnis des
Dramas. (…)
Die Aktualität des Stücks «Angst verboten
» liegt auf der Hand. In Griechenland,
wo Ängste vielfach existenzielles Ausmass
erreichen, darf man auf dessen Rezeption
besonders gespannt sein”.


bz, 26.3.2015: “Die Lakonie und Komik von Holligers Sprache kommt in Angelina Galbenis psychologischer Deutung gut zur Geltung. (…) Die Leistung aller Beteiligten brachte eine gelungene Erstaufführung zustande, die grossen Zuspruch beim Publikum fand”.
