Play (2009)

A beckettish Game without Beckett

Time: hic et nunc
Place: Room
With People, who are incapable of being Nihilists

A room, a game, different people. Movements arisen from these three factors give each person the opportunity to become the owner of an image, a form or an experience. Inspired by the spirit of Beckett’s plays, the rules of the game are to give space for snapshots that reinvent themselves. The performance becomes a process, which understands the content and form as blanks, that are filled and emptied again and again.

Premiere: 02.03.2009 @LOFFT, Leipzig
