On the 1st of September, after a long and wonderful holiday in Brazil and Peru, I entered the OFF Theater again. Ready and exited to start with the rehearsals for the new play of the Bernhard Ensemble: WELT.UNTER.MELANCHOLIA, directed by Ernst Kurt Weigel and performed by Grischka Voss, Tamara Stern, Albane Troehler, Kajetan Dick, Michael Welz, Ernst Kurt Weigel and me.
The play is a 'mash up' of Lars von Triers' film Melancholia en Jura Soyfers' play Der Weltuntergang (oder Die Welt steht auf kein' Fall mehr lang).
Those two meet in the White Box at the OFF Theater, at our stage, where we perform, create chaos and silence, sing a song, are happy, sad, angry, jealous, float in space, dance on earth.
I can't say too much yet, unfortunately. But, I know it is worth to come and see what we have created.
So, this was just a short 'hello' to put WELT.UNTER.MELANCHOLIA out there, in the world.
The premiere is on the 4th of November. Flyer and more information soon!
