Apart from the flock, a sheep encounters a wolf.
To avoid being eaten, it devises a ruse.

It asks the wolf to play the flute so it can dance one last time.
The sound of the music summons the shepherd dog.
The sheep can escape.

KLITTERN (aesopica) investigates figurations of resistance within asymmetrical power relations by working through the fable ‘The Wolf and the Kid as Musicians’, ascribed to the ancient poet and slave Aesop. The simple plot of the fable with its dense dramatic structure is repeatedly re-enacted in changing genres and allows for the exploration of tactics of non-participation and withdrawal in a model-like manner by way of the animal world. It is especially suited to address scenarios of domination in which no recourse to official institutions or legitimate forms of political power seems available.

With material by Kathy Acker, Aesop, Gregory Dark, Alexandra Kollontai, Quirinus Kuhlmann, Peter Kropotkin, George Jackson et al.

A co-production by Otto Falckenberg Schule/Münchner Kammerspiele and BRUCH. Invited to Körber Studio Junge Regie, Thalia Theater, Hamburg, June 2022.

Supported by Kulturreferat der Landeshauptstadt München, Kunstverein München, OTTE Metallbau, Richard Stury Stiftung, streitfeld.
