Big Brother is watching you - more than 70 years ago George Orwell wrote this science fiction thriller about the destruction of a human being by a totalitarian surveillance state. Winston Smith doubts this system, he hates it, and that alone is a thought crime, his death sentence, and he knows it. But suddenly something completely unexpected happens to him:

He falls in love. But can he really trust Julia? Isn't she a member of the thought police after all?

Uwe Neumann is Winston Smith in the Kanttheater Berlin version - Anette Daugardt slips into the roles of the antagonists, the lovers, the thought police. Two chairs and a trombone are enough to show the equally fascinating and frightening intellectual core of this classic negative utopia in all its threatening topicality.
