Christoph Marthaler Odön von Horvath / Christoph Marthaler

[Theatre]

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.
