In this profoundly poetic work, the internationally-acclaimed author Falk Richter brings his trenchant language and critical gaze to bear on the crisis facing the world today, and its impact on young people’s relationships.
With the collaboration of Goethe Institut

“Crisis is the new constant; the relentless sense of insecurity, panic, fear, nostalgia and hysteria it brings breaks people inside and brings them—literally—to their knees. Nothing can be relied on anymore. Everything could collapse at any moment. How can I deal with that? What can I turn to? Who or what can I use to orientate myself, and how, ultimately, can I EXPERIENCE something meaningful again? Withdrawal? Silence? Flight?”

Falk Richter and Anouk van Dijk continue their fruitful collaboration with this explosive production from the superb company of Berlin’s Schaubühne theatre. In this profoundly poetic work, Richter, who is acknowledged internationally as one of the most important authors of his generation, brings his trenchant language and critical gaze to bear on the crisis facing the world today, and its impact on young people’s personal and professional relationships.
