Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s novella cycle The Legacy of Cain was planned as a poetic panorama of the chills and chasms of a natural history of humankind. However, only the first two of six parts were realized. COLD LOVE (seelenstahlbaden) speculatively continues his abandoned opus magnum in five miniature plays. Following the structure of a Japanese nō-theater festival, different performative perspectives on the risks of modern projects of freedom are chosen and explored in their potential for frustration in a model-like manner – as a therapeutic soul treatment for the lovesick.

With materials by Guillaume Dustan, Dorothee Günther, Alexandra Kollontai, Yukio Mishima, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, Max Stirner, Pseudo-Zenchiku/Bertolt Brecht.
