Eure Ganz Großen Themen Sind Weg

Check out René Pollesch's extraordinarily creative theatre piece from the infamous director

  • Text by Antonia Wille

"The big topics in theatre are out. They have to go - the small ones are important. Instead of avarice - creativity wins. We can make small topics important and eternal - if we just present them long enough," says René Pollesch.

These are the words of Germany's special theatre director Rene Pollesch. He creates extraordinary pieces - especially at the Munich Kammerspiele. His newest piece "Eure ganz großen Themen sind weg" premiered last week - with an tremendous stage optic. There's a skull in which the actors can climb in and out - while they are thinking about the world and their own identification. They can not live, they can not love, they can not die. And why they can not leave. It's a kind of philosophic piece - to concentrate on the small things in life. And to get into your own head - to find out who you are.

Like every Pollesch piece it's very experimental, very theatrical and very self reflective. And essential too. Check out the Kammerspiele in Munich where the next performance will be in May.
