Fermats letzter Satz

Fermats letzter Satz

Fermat's Last Theorem is based on the mathematical problem of the same name, which was solved in 1993 by the British mathematician Andrew Wiles. A BBC broadcast documented on the septennial solution path. Inspired by the magical number Seven and the intricacies of the whole process I staged the movie as storytelling performance. The lecture itself was held without notes, yet - as the picture shows - 4 and a half pages were needed just to register the main facts. Duration: approx. 40 min. „Fermat“ was only performed thrice, last in 2010.
