Within the framework of the PAF Festival

Bridge Markland adapts Lessing's "Nathan the Wise", one of the most famous plays about being human, for her classic in the box series.

She virtuously juggles classical text lines and pop music quotations and, in passing, undermines fixed role attributions. She switches rapidly between performance, puppetry and playback and dusts off the classical material for a broad audience. Lessing's parable focuses on people rather than their origins or even their religion - and is thus more topical than ever. Humanity and tolerance can overcome divides and make peaceful coexistence possible - this message, fast-paced and catchy, carried by a tapestry of sounds from well-known pop songs, is superbly embodied and presented in Bridge Markland's one-woman puppet transformation playback show.

Supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media as part of NEUSTART KULTUR / #TakeAction./ Performance as part of the PAF Festival.
