For her production with the title ‘Point Of No Return’,
Yael Ronen began a rehearsal process in July 2016, which intended to
examine current relationships and the future of sex under the influence
of technological developments: dating apps, body implants and cybersex
were the subject of joint discussions and research with the actors. On
July 22, David S. went on a shooting spree in Munich that threw the
whole city into turmoil. The fear of Munich’s citizens turned the
assassination into a terrorist attack with 67 goals. And the actors also
experienced this evening, each in their way: the theme of the
rehearsals changed abruptly, and this dramatic event seemed to be a
‘point of no return’. Together with the actors, Yael Ronen turned to the
complex psychological dynamics of each individual during such attacks
and the ubiquitous subject of terror. Everyone is trapped in their own
reactions, somewhere between real impressions, fearful imaginings and
unconscious images transmitted by the media, from which there is no way
back, or so it seems. On the night of the show, the permanent stage
situation, the reality of the actors with fiction and reality, our
Western privileged perspective, self-reference and the different
cultural backgrounds of each is interwoven with the real events in the
‘Point Of No Return’ refers to those dramatic moments where something can no longer be undone. In history, for example, it is considered as the point at which a historical development irrevocably takes its course. At the same time, this moment can be explored on many levels: What does this ‘point of no return’ mean on an individual level or in its political dimension - a utopian or dystopian moment?
