Subotnik is about the first trial of a young, Turkish-born lawyer, which puts her in elementary trouble of conscience. Composer Samuel Penderbayne (AUS) and director Theresa von Halle (D) have transformed the compelling narrative into a concentrated, music-dramatic chamber play.

Ensemble Subotnik: Alexandra Ionis, Franziska Junge, Henriette Zahn | Composition: Samuel Penderbayne | Direction: Theresa von Halle | Set Design:

Amelie Hensel | Dramaturgy: Elise Schobeß



The story of an alleged child murderer Ein hellblauer Tag inspired Andys Skordis (composition, Cyprus) and Jelena Vuksanovic (libretto, Serbia) to a kind of continuation, into a “Dark Party” with the protagonist’s inner voices.

Ensemble Ein hellblauer Tag: Derya Atakan, Merlind Constanze Pohl, Enrico Wenzel | Composition: Andys Skordis | Text / Visuals: Jelena Vuksanovic | Stage Design: Irena Kukric | Costume Design:  Magdalena Klasnja | Direction: Miriam Götz
