Based on the narration by Franz Kafka
ca. 30 min
Performance: Samuel Koch, Robert Lang | Director, Choreography: Stephan Hintze | Dramaturgy: Jonas Zipf | Costumes: Miriam Schliehe
An ape stands before a group of scientists and reports on how he learned to become human-like. Franz Kafka’s monologue is presented by the two performers Samuel Koch and Robert Lang, who are symbiotically connected with each other and thus become a remarkable double-being. In skin-tight cooperation, they develop a gentle, minimalistic and highly fascinating choreography of movement and speaking. A radical and partly self-ironic reflection of personal demeanour and of that what we call civilisation.
The performance will be followed by an artist talk.
