It is centred on Argan, who not only imagines he is ill, he actually is: he is suffering from hypochondria. As a result, he cannot and will not relate to his social surroundings any differently than he does to his misfortune, which he circles in tyrannical self-reflection. With «The Imaginary Invalid», the Cologne-based writer and musician PeterLicht writes his fourth new version of Molière: in his customary playful language he dissects both the individual body and the body of society and breaks the final taboo of neoliberal self-optimisers – that of mortality.Der eingebildete Kranke oder das Klistier der reinen Vernunft (The imaginary invalid or the enema of pure reason)
The author and musician PeterLicht frees this moral portrait that we now find barely legible from the socio-political reality of French absolutism and sets his sights on the present in his new version «Tartuffe or the Philosopher’s Swine». Here he employs the same characters as the original, whose literary descendants are nevertheless given considerable licence: in secular times one abhors a vacuum and so the «socially interconnected sculpture» hopes for and fears the appearance of Tartuffe, who serves to supply their wishes and as a surface onto which they may project themselves.Tartuffe oder Das Schwein der Weisen (Tartuffe or the philosopher's swine)
For the city of Munich, the 1972 Olympic Games are a giant step towards the future. How the Cold War was reflected in the «cheerful games» of 1972, why violence in the form of international terrorism came to the Olympic village despite all efforts to the contrary, and what consequences this continues to have today are investigated by the directing team of Regine Dura and Hans-Werner Kroesinger using eyewitness accounts, investigation files, newspaper articles and interviews with people who were there and saw what happened.Die Spiele müssen weitergehen – München 1972 (THE GAMES MUST GO ON – MUNICH 1972)
In her new work, the director Claudia Bauer, who has been invited to the Berlin Theatertreffen four times and is renowned for her work with fast and furious acting ensembles, now tackles someone who typifies Munich, the brilliant comedian Karl Valentin. In her usual, opulent stage language she will devise a homage to the Bavarian whose anarchic approach to language led the critic Alfred Kerr to invent the term «Wortzerklauberer», someone who steals words and tears them to pieces.Valentiniade.
