Crave and 4.48 Psychosis in Berlin, Germany

Crave (Gier) and 4.48 Psychosis (4.48 Psychose) are on in Berlin at the Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz, Kurfürstendamm 153, 10709 Berlin.

Crave. "Die Personen des Stücks, zwei Männer und zwei Frauen, sind nur mit Buchstaben bezeichnet. Wer will, kann A, B, C und M als »Author«, »Brother«, »Child« und »Mother« lesen (oder A, B, C als Nebenrollen, wogegen M dann als »Me« oder Zentral-Ich gelten dürfte) für die Wirkung des Textes ist das alles unerheblich. »Gier« ist eine wunderbare, befremdliche Sprachkomposition aus Zustandsbeschreibungen (»Ich spüre nichts«), Lebensregeln (»Gib, habe Mitleid, beherrsche«), Story-Fetzen (etwa ein Kindsmißbrauch im Auto), aus Liebesverlangen und Liebesekel und Todessehnsucht. "

The players are Falk Rockstroh (A), Thomas Dannemann (B), Cristin König (C), Michaela Steiger (D) and the director is Thomas Ostermeier.

4.48 Psychose. "Das Stück, das erkennbar an Becketts späten Dramen geschult ist und unter anderem T.S.Eliot zitiert, wirkt zunächst wie ein auf vier Sprecher verteilter Monolog. Und doch gibt es Rudimente eines Beziehungs-Doppels im Quartett: Der ältere Mann A verzehrt sich nach dem jungen Mädchen C (an dem er sich offenbar in früheren Jahren vergriffen hat), sie reagiert angewidert. Der junge Mann B verlangt nach der Liebe der alternden Frau M, die aber will ihn nur benutzen zum Zweck der Begattung: »Ich brauche ein Kind.  "4.48 Psychose" ist das Postmortem einer desolaten Frau, deren Selbst destruktiv ist und die nur das Sprechen kurzzeitig von ihrem Schmerz erlösen kann

The players are Jule Böwe, Sylvana Krappatsch, Kay Bartholomäus Schulze and the director is Falk Richter

The next performances of Crave/Gier are on 26, 27, 30 Mar, 1 Apr  2002 (too late!!)

Blasted in Johannesburg, South Africa

Blasted will be on in Johannesburg, South Africa in February 2002."For me, the play is utterly alive to the sensitivity and brutality, the vulnerability and the cruelty of our lives. I connect to this . In a South African context it will be pretty provocative as many are trying to forget the extreme brutality of the past and present. History here is literally written with the bullet and blood and beauty".



4.48 Psychosis in Finland

4.48 Psychosis (4.48 Psykoosi ) is on at the Finnish National Theater. The director is Michael Baran.

The actors were Wanda Dubiel, Seppo Pääkkönen and Tuuli Lindberg (singing).
Visual designer was Kimmo Viskari and music was by Juhani Nuorvala

Site visitor Markku says "Pääkkönen played the doctor. The music was quite experimental...some sort of avantgardistic classical music (the singer talked about some "natural sounds" you cannot get out of normally tuned piano, but I couldn't get the jargon) and the singer sang lines from the play. After the list of medicals was revealed, she sang their names a few times. I attended a discussion about the play afterwards and they had quit interesting opinions and stories about the rehearsals."
