Can we comprehend the society in which we live? How will it finally change? In the bleakness of the German winter of 1978/79, a group of young people are seeking ways to escape the bourgeois and capitalist circumstances that are contributing to the progressive destruction of the world and themselves. Surrounded by the media noise of global news, controlled and monitored by the police and financial markets, they play with the knives and forks of left-wing terrorism. Their strident gestures against the systemic outside are grotesquely empty. Their own relationships – rehearsed within their families and the patriarchy – become the actual scene of the necessary revolution, as do the dynamics within the group as “the maximum of possible coexistence” (RW Fassbinder). Featuring eleven students from the Otto Falckenberg School of the Performing Arts, this production by Charlotte Sprenger examines the rebellion and depression of a young generation.

Invited to the 38th Bayerische Theatertage in the “Next Generation/Theatre Schools” category.
