Trilogie / Trilogien

Jon Fosse
Directed by Luk Perceval
Performance with english surtitles: 23./24. October
Jon Fosse, who is the best-known Norwegian contemporary playwright, created with this prize-awarded trilogy highly poetic and musical stories about a modern Mary and Joseph couple: In need they search for a place to stay. Love and the longing for a better life pushes Olav to commit a murder, while Asta is left alone with her son. Both enmesh themselves in a guiltless guilt.
Luk Perceval, one of the most important European directors, developed his own stage version of the trilogy for Norway.


Henrik Ibsen
Directed by Roger Vontobel
With english surtitles:13./29. November
Ibsen’s hero is a religious man, who denounces both the egoism of people and the double standards of the church. He longs to lead humans to »the right life«. But his faith turns out to be fanaticism. The dramatic poem explores how humankind destroys itself through an unrestrained will, which demands »all or nothing«. Hinrich Schmidt-Henkel, one of the most renowned translators, has transferred the original into a modern prose version.

Richard III

William Shakespeare
Directed by Jan Bosse
with english surtitles: 24. November
There is nothing Richard desires more than to be King of England. He is a master of intrigue and betrayal, familiar with the ploys of battlefield and court. As he lets us in on his plans, we witness the ruthlessness and unfettered ambition of a murderous political player.

»Fantastic acting, magnificent scenes, cleverly adapted text, remarkable theatre.« (Deutschlandfunk)
