Florian Fischer creates - with and without language - an essay for the stage in which we learn to see erased pasts. Because: The past never stops. The past is present. - Only when we realize that everything we consider normal had to be invented, a future becomes imaginable again.

00:00 / 00:00
   

Chekhov's protagonist is a heavily indebted landowner who, just a few years ago, was still full of ideals and plans. Now his strength is consumed and the love for his seriously ill wife has died out. Jens Harzer plays the famous anti-hero, the dark epi-centre in the midst of a helpless society.

After Work traces snapshots from the history of labour in calm, intense images. With dance, with acting, with music, with spoken words. A hybrid fusion of different ways of performing arts, where the boundaries between the art disciplines become blurred.

William Shakespeare turned an European legend into the philosophical story of a search for meaning that is still fascinating today. Directed by Johans Simons with Sandra Hüller in the title role, Hamlet becomes a plea for radical honesty.

For two decades the band led by singer and mastermind Stuart Staples has existed as Tindersticks. Their genre might be termed “tragic pop”: dense and complex songs with ambitious lyrics wrapped up in an almost dark atmosphere borne along by emotionally sweeping strings. We eagerly await their first concert on the main stage at Schauspielhaus Bochum.
