another war story

by katrin Pfändler


Imagine you meet someone. Imagine you find that someone attractive. Imagine you like his looks, her smile, his voice, the way she talks, the way he treats you. Imagine you get nervous when that someone is around. Imagine you want to be close to her, get to know more about him. Imagine that someone feels the same way about you. 

Imagine you fall in love and the only thing that stands between you and that specific someone is six years of war. 

And yet, it is 1945, the war is over. 

How do you stop fighting in a soldier's mind? How do you forget about 'nation' if it is what you have killed for? How do you escape from the ones that have been shot and burned and raped? 

It is 1945, but when is the war over?

Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead

by Bert V. Royal

The Peanuts gang are all grown up! 

When CB's dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group's bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits.

Richard III

By William Shakespeare

In the fall-outs of the War of the Roses one man eagerly grabs for power. Richard III is a play about mistrust, paranoia, violence, and the lead character's strife for greatness. In a world of constant war and psychological as well as physical abuse everyone has to fend for themselves.

This adaptation focuses on shifting loyalties, people's interactions in extreme situations, and egocentrism in every sense of the word.

Today, in a society of continuous struggle for upward mobility, this play has lost none of its relevance.

H.C. Andersen - Two Tales in Song and Motion

in cooperation with the Anglistenchor

Mit Schauspielgruppe und Chor hat das Anglistische Seminar gleich zwei hochkarätige Kulturgruppen im Haus, die immer wieder für Furore sorgen. Nun tun sich beide für ein einzigartiges Projekt zusammen.

Aufgeführt werden die mit dem Pulitzer-Preis gekrönte „Little Match Girl Passion“ von David Lang sowie „Nightingale“ von Ugis Praulins — zwei Stücke, die wie die ihnen zugrunde liegenden Märchen mit ganz unterschiedlichem Charakter aufwarten und bestechen — gerade in der besonderen Akustik der Peterskirche.

Der Chor bleibt für die Aufführung im Dunkeln, während die Schauspieler sich innerhalb eines komplexen Bühnenbilds in der lichtdurchfluteten Peterskirche bewegen. Insbesondere die Nachtvorstellung bietet hierfür eine ganz besondere Atmosphäre.

Regie: Thorsten Schulze 
Musikalische Leitung: Caitlyn Bowman
