Corinne Maier – Weltgeschichtliche Betrachtungen or this is the end of the world…
Working alongside and together with the historian Jacob Burckhardt, we manage to delve into the ‘mental situation of our age’ in “Weltgeschichtliche Betrachtungen” or “This is the end of the world as we know it” (working title). This includes blogs as powerful opinion platforms that apparently have an increasingly dramatic impact. We transfer these texts from screens to the stage. Five performers incorporate them while challenging and empowering themselves and the audience.
A production by Plan C Performances in co-production with Kaserne Basel, Münchner Kammerspiele, Sophiensaele Berlin, Theater Tuchlaube Aarau and Verein „Burckhardt 1818-2018“. Furthermore guest performances are planned in the season 2018/19 at Gessnerallee Zürich.
Funded by Fachausschuss Tanz & Theater BS/BL, Hauptstadtkulturfonds and further sponsors.
