From the director
„These days the creative people sit in the audience. It used to be the other way. Those who were more creative used to be on stage, those less so – admired the elitist work of the first group. It cannot be denied that creativity, creative impetus, entrepreneurial spirit are socially expected these days, while a creative individual has become a sort of an icon of capitalism and, most likely, we owe it all to i.a. theatre artists. And although flexibility, mobility, creativity, responsibility do not have such a good standing as lust, hate, revenge, love, death, fault or fate, it is creativity – and it’s time to say it aloud – that the future belongs to. Therefore, whenever a play is about lust, there’s a risk that although everybody will be willing to contemplate a story about it and to draw conclusions from it, most of them will not necessarily need lust. With creativity, it’s a different story – everybody wants to be creative.”
For organized gymnasium and post-gymnasium school groups we offer introductory workshops to the performance (please contact the education department firstname.lastname@example.org for more details).

„Unlike most of the moral authorities these days, Pollesch is not bothered with the poor “free market” in crisis. He’s bothered with the humans instead. Instead of wondering how to make the audience more attractive or “employable”, he wonders how to prevent them from taking antidepressants, turning to Facebook for some comfort, spending their last penny on “personality coaching” or signing junk contracts.”
