A young woman named Elizaveta Bam has locked herself in her room because she’s about to be arrested for a »heinous crime«. Her pursuers want to hand her over to the authorities, without being able to give her a single reason why.

The vague suspicion that this could unfurl into a realistic crime drama quickly vanishes into thin air. The situation turns upside down completely and the existential danger from the beginning transforms into a clownish game.

Together with the Exil Ensemble, Christian Weise investigates the ambiguity of one of the most important texts in the absurdist theatre canon: when the dominant ideology demands absolute uniformity, how can superficial chatter become a tool for criticism?

Premiere: April 14th, 2018
