Performing in

«Agnes Bernauer», first performed in the GDR in 1977, starts like a stop-motion fairy tale: after the death of her mother, Agnes is sent out to work by her bankrupt father. But she is unable to believe that she will find a profession that «gives her pleasure», and decides to marry money. Her rise in society happens quickly: Agnes becomes pregnant and takes Albrecht as a husband: a squeamish only child and mother’s boy who is pampered in the golden cage of the Werdenfels’ family business.

In her trilogy Judith Herzberg uses subtle humour and a delicate hand to portray a Jewish extended family from Amsterdam between the 1970s and the turn of the millennium. It is a chronicle of emotions and complex relationships. In a cycle that spans three generations there are marriages, children are conceived, couples separate, fall in love with someone new – and get married again. To outsiders, members of the family and their friends appear to lead the same everyday lives as their contemporaries and when they meet at weddings or funerals, they talk, dance, fall in love and argue. But, quite casually and suddenly, glimpses of wounded souls appear behind this cheerful façade.

A golden age and decades of peace appear to have come to an end with the death of the Danish king. His successor Claudius attempts to soothe these burgeoning conflicts with diplomacy, but Prince Hamlet, the dead king’s son, refuses to accept his uncle as heir to the throne and his mother’s new husband. While the people seems willing to let itself be convinced of the new ruler’s illegitimacy, Hamlet has no desire to take his place – and thus, perhaps unconsciously, sabotages the traditional concept of political order itself.

Vor sechzig Jahren, am 11. April 1961, begann in Jerusalem der Prozess gegen Adolf Eichmann, Leiter des nationalsozialistischen Referats für «Judenangelegenheiten» und einer der Hauptverantwortlichen des organisierten Genozids. Heinar Kipphardt verarbeitete die Verhörprotokolle des israelischen Geheimdienstes mit Eichmann zu seinem Dokumentartheaterstück «Bruder Eichmann», das 1983 am Residenztheater uraufgeführt wurde. Regisseur Sebastian Baumgarten wird sich dem bei der Uraufführung kontrovers diskutierten Text mit den Möglichkeiten und Mitteln des digitalen Theaters annähern.
