Corinna Sigmund’s first work Hello – Goodbye is a number of different plays at the same time. It is a play about love, the tragedy of family, the madness of one’s own mind and the eternal longing for I-don’t-know-what. At the heart of the play, however, is the search for authentic feelings in the greatest metropolis of them all, the Internet. Hello – Goodbye earned the Sponsorship award, Youth Theatre Prize Baden-Württemberg 2010.
