          Performing Arts Festival Berlin Markus&Markus Ibsen: Peer Gynt


          2016 May 27 28 | 20.00

          Deutsch mit englischen Übertiteln

          Peer Gynt is an exceptionally talented dancer, womanizer and pilot. He knows how to handle a machine gun. However, the button-molder wants to melt his soul just like a misshaped lead figure. He can only escape this fate if he can prove that he was himself throughout his life. Peer has nine children, but he can’t be with them because a wall has been built between them. Peer Gynt has dementia. What is the ‘self’ exactly? And who exactly decides whose reality is valid? 

          MARKUS&MARKUS ARE Katarina Eckold, Lara-Joy Hamann, Manuela Pirozzi, Markus Schäfer, Markus Wenzel GUEST Herbert

          A production by markus&markus in co-production with Gessnerallee Zürich, ROXY Birsfelden, LOT Braunschweig and SOPHIENSÆLE. Funded by the Mayor of Berlin - Senatskanzlei - Kulturelle Angelegenheiten, Fonds Darstellende Künste e.V., MWK Niedersachsen, Stiftung Niedersachsen and Kulturbüro der Stadt Hildesheim. With friendly support of Funk.

          Markus&Markus is a theater collective from Hildesheim consisting of Lara-Joy Bues, Katarina Eckold, Markus Schäfer and Markus Wenzel. Together, the collective stands for a unique form of documentary theater, passionate investigation and a radical lack of perfection. Each work is based on intensive research, which, by being captured on video, forms an elementary component of their work. However, the collective is not concerned with documenting a reality and explaining the world – instead, the theater context is crucial for accessing reality. Their performances have been shown at international festivals and have received, among others, the George Tabori Förderpreis. Since 2016 Markus&Markus receives conceptual funding from the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture.
