Dušan David Pařízek's Bochum production of Henrik Ibsen's Peer Gynt will celebrate its premiere as a livestream. After his highly acclaimed Bochum reinterpretation of Iphigenia based on Euripides and Elfriede Jelinek, the award-winning Czech director now turns his attention to Ibsen's restless traverser of the world and, with an acting ensemble around Anna Drexler in the title role as well as plenty of music, shakes up the play vigorously.

Two actors, a technician and a musician are waiting for their play to begin. Everything is ready – but where’s the audience? They’re meant to be sold out. But everything is a little bit different today. The Invisible Man is all about what you can’t see. About invisiblity. And secretly it’s also about how nice it can be not being seen.

Afraid to die? People no longer remember. In the future in Elias Canetti's play Die Befristeten, the date of death is fixed for all human beings, from birth. There are no more fatal accidents, no more murder in the conventional sense, the oldest people are generally considered to be the most valuable, and death is romantically called "the moment".
