“1968 - An Occupation Of The Kammerspiele” back on March 12-14 at 8 pm at the Kammer 1
During Peter Stein’s staging of Peter Weiss’ “Viet Nam Discourse” in the Münchner Kammerspiele in 1968, actors collected money for weapon donations to the Vietcong, resulting in a scandal and the production’s imminent cancellation by the director August Everding. Fifty years on, the Kammerspiele invites artists to engage in the topics and issues of the turbulent ’68 period from a contemporary and subjective perspective. The end result will be a range of contributions ranging from the past to the present and the future, all of which take seriously the controversial legacy of 1968.
An act of political theatre, a risk, an experiment by and with all those who want to shape the world with the power of their art. In response to the AFD Chairman Jörg Meuthen’s demands that we must “get away from the contaminated left red-green, filthy Germany of the 68ers,” the Kammerspiele quotes Jean-Paul Sartre: “LET IMAGINATION TAKE POWER.” NOW.
