Listen to Corinna's soft voice as she reads from her new book "DON'T KILL ME, I'M IN LOVE" and let yourself be enchanted by the soft sounds of the piano (David Humphrey), while Annette Brunner creates sculptural forms out of clay from the intense feelings.
Karl and Ada love each other. Karl, however, is married to Maya, with whom he has the little daughter Lilly.
Ada thinks she has her feelings under control, until one morning she senses what a powerful force is slumbering inside her. She longs for the carefree lightness of being and is now even prepared to overstep her own boundaries.
I am convinced that every human being has the choice again and again to act out of fear or out of courage. It takes courage to love. By loving here, I do not mean the general ability to love, nor the comfort love that makes the framework of one's own vulnerability controllable and manageable. I am talking about the love that goes deep inside and that many people like to protect themselves from because it makes them vulnerable. I am interested in the process that this love can trigger and what it takes to live it out in a healthy way - because I believe that this is also possible. This kind of love is certainly not for cowards, because it carries both the risk of self-destruction and at the same time the chance of great happiness. That is the stuff my novella is about.' - Corinna-Rosa Falkenberg
