“Enjoy Racism” wins festival award

Winner of Politik im Freien Theater

No Sex on Sunday

with Thomas Hauser, Christian Löber, Stefan Merki, Annette Paulmann, Benjamin Radjaipour, Franz Rogowski

According to surveys by the Japan Family Planning Association, sex no longer matters to half of all Japanese couples. What’s more, almost 50% of 18 to 24-year-olds have never had sex. “I’m attracted to some of my girlfriends, but I’ve learned to live without sex. Emotional entanglements are just too complicated. I’m not into that,” as an article in The Guardian quotes one young man as saying. “People seem to have concluded that the satisfaction they get from sex is lower than the effort required,” says Masahiro Yamada, Professor of Family Sociology in Tokyo. Is this state of affairs a systemic failure, or is it driven by a fear of real-life intimate moments with an actual counterpart — something that seems much simpler in the virtual world? Are relationships just another stress factor for people exhausted by long working hours, or does this version of “I would prefer not to” embody a subversive act in the face of a male-dominated culture of desire? Director Toshiki Okada and his theatre group chelfitsch celebrated their first international success in 2004 with the play “5 Days in March”, in which two young people flee from the outside world into a ‘love hotel’, primarily to have sex for five days. In his third production at the Münchner Kammerspiele following “Hot Pepper, Air Conditioner and the Farewell Speech” and “Nō Theater”, Toshiki Okada now narrates the tale of young and not-so-young people, who sing love songs in a karaoke bar without physically touching each other.

The next shows are on November 11, December 12 and December 19.

Congratulations!

“What they want to hear” is in the second place of the nachtkritik- Charts

“What they want to hear” is number two of the nachtkritik theatre chart.

Below you can read an overview of the reviews:

“Dann wieder überrascht einen der Abend damit, dass der am linken Bühnenrand sitzende Techniker von seiner Fluchtgeschichte aus Afghanistan erzählt. Und ja: Man kann mit solchen Geschichten auch anders in Berührung kommen, und doch sei "What I Want to Hear" unbedingt jeder Münchner Schulklasse empfohlen. Den bayerischen Ministerpräsidenten und seinen Vorgänger dagegen sollte man dauerverpflichten und gar nicht mehr rauslassen aus dem Theater. Damit wären auch gleich viele Probleme auf einmal gelöst.”
(nachtkritik.de, Sabine Leucht)

“Und so zeigt sich "What they want to hear" als eindringlicher und ruhiger, theatraler Kommentar zur gerade jetzt wieder hochgepeitschten Flüchtlingsdebatte.” (deutschlandfunk.de, Sven Ricklefs)

“Es darf gelacht werden. Denn gelegentlich ist dieser Abend überraschend komisch, obwohl es um ein trauriges Thema geht in der letzten Kammerspiel–Premiere der Saison. Nämlich um Flüchtlingsschicksale und die automatische Verwandlung hilfsbedürftiger Menschen in Verfügungsmasse der Verwaltung. […] Begeisterter Jubel.”
(Münchner Merkur, Alexander Altmann)
