Robinson Crusoe

after the novel of Daniel Defoe

Robinson Crusoe, son of a merchant, has a dream: he wants to go to sea. His parents advised him against it. At home, he'd have a more comfortable life. But Robinson's curiosity is stronger. Just as he is traveling from Brazil to Guinea, a storm floods him as the only survivor on an uninhabited island.

Over the next 28 years, Robinson settles down in the wilderness, well or badly. With a self-built raft he saves the remains of his civilization from the shipwreck - provisions, tools and weapons. Money is worthless now. Robinson has to start all over again: he grows grain, chases and breeds goats, builds a hut, cuts a notch for every day and saves a native from cannibals. He calls it Friday, teaches it English and British customs. Daniel Defoe writes his book of adventurers in 1719, based on the real experiences of sailor Alexander Selkirk, which is widely regarded as the first English novel and has been imitated since then.

But norton. commander. productions. productions. get to the bottom of the matter: Does charity in the wilderness have any authority? Does the survival instinct make a human being an animal? How much renunciation is civilian? When is what superfluous? The artist duo, which operates at the interfaces between theatre, performance and film, was founded in 1995 by Harriet Maria and Peter Meining. Her theatre work is characterised by a technically sophisticated use of video and film on stage. "Robinson Crusoe" is the fourth collaboration with THEATER AN DER PARKAUE.

In co-production of norton. commander. productions. with THEATER AN DER PARKAUE.
