Acting Performance: "Meeting Lise Meitner"

Life and work of the Austrian-Swedish nuclear physicist Lise Meitner (1878-1968) are in the center of the monologue “Meeting Lise Meitner“. Anita Zieher plays Lise Meitner and talks vividly about incidents of her life, achievements and impediments as well as the contents of her research and the passion for her work.

The monologue is part of the theatre play “Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible”, produced by the Viennese association portraittheater directed by Sandra Schüddekopf, with Anita Zieher impersonating the three women. The play was a great success in Austria and had already been invited e.g. to Australia, Germany, Iran, Poland, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom and to the United States.
