A story by Franz Kafka
ca. 30 min
With: Samuel Koch, Robert Lang | Direction, choreography: Stephan Hintze | Dramaturgy: Jonas Zipf | Costumes: Miriam Schliehe
A few tires – common objects in a monkey cage – serve as seats and desks for the speaker. A monkey named Redpeter gives a presentation to an unspecified academic audience about his incarnation. Presented by a double-creature, the text is about the narrow gap between human and animal. Performers Robert Lang and Samuel Koch will be strapped onto each other to form a double-headed body, and in tight cooperation they will contemplate the blurred lines of our humanity through Kafka’s monologue.
The performance on May 23 will be followed by an artist talk with sign language interpretation.
Presentation: Dr. Hans-Friedrich Bormann – Institute of Theatre and Media Studies, FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg
