The Forbidden Zone archiveOffering a uniquely female perspective on war, science and the advance of chemical weapons, this is a multimedia show of epic scale and intricacy. Clara Immerwahr, wife of the famed chemist Fritz Haber, is profoundly disturbed when her husband's research leads to the development of chlorine gas during the First World War. Over 30 years later, her granddaughter, a scientist committed to finding a poison gas antidote, faces similar despair. Performed in English and some German with accompanying English surtitles.
