DAS VORSPRECHEN

von Boris Nikitin

Director: Boris Nikitin

play

During their three and a half years of training, actresses and actors of the Otto-Falckenberg-Schule learn to generate a wide range of emotions on stage, to be credible and to become a different person in the eyes of the spectators. They have turned into experts in the art of disguise, offering their bodies and identities through acting skills as artistic merchandise.

The work produced by the Swiss stage director Boris Nikitin spotlights the day of final auditions. This situation combines the artistic fiction of acting with its economic hard truths. Illusion and reality merge together.

The spectators of the play not only watch actresses and actors during their work. The focus is also directed at the professional observers, the counterparts of acting, the dramaturges, the artistic directors and agents – and their expert ways of perception and assessment.
