by Odön von Horváth

Produced by the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxembourg-Platz

Between the Vienna of the 1920s and today’s working-class Berlin, Horváth’s tragi-comic characters, outcasts of economic development, are the ancestors of today’s roaming “Ossis”, who take refuge in an imaginary idyllic past when their world wasn’t in tatters. Horváth and his satirical wit are well served here by a director who enjoys showing great turmoil on stage, well beyond mere social criticism.

Marcelo Evelin, Demolition Incorporada

Buy tickets

In this piece, the choreographer Marcelo Evelin, from the north-east region of Brazil, invites us to set foot inside a metaphorical forest and its ecological condition. Through minimalist dance, and guided by the call of the legendary Uirapuru, a rare and endangered bird, six performers embody the promise of discovering what is and what still eludes our senses.
