TILL EULENSPIEGEL

based on motifs by Thomas Brasch, Günther Weisenborn and the folk book

Last year, aufBruch already invited the public to a theater performance at the Gustav-Böß open-air stage in Jungfernheide. While the dense greenery provided the backdrop for Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," the amphitheater, which has since been cleared of thickets, is now the stage for "Till Eulenspiegel.

The "95 Histories" of the immortal prankster and gallows trick - who possibly never existed in real life - have occupied artists of all times, from Charles de Coster to Richard Strauss, from Gerhart Hauptmann to Daniel Kehlmann, from Erich Kästner to Christa and Gerhard Wolf. In a collage of motifs from the folk book and Eulenspiegel texts by Thomas Brasch and Günther Weisenborn, aufBruch transports Till's foolhardy mischief to the time of the Peasants' War: violence, poverty and hunger everywhere.

The wide round of the open-air stage becomes a manege. Here Till meets a wandering troupe of jugglers. They are in danger of being torn apart between revolting peasants and brutal landsknechts - Till's reckless lightness as a trigger for a game with reality and fiction, with history and fantasy. The question of whether one wants to play with each other becomes, in the conflict with rebellious peasants and marauding landsknechts, the question of whether one can live with each other. Or even to fight.

Till Eulenspiegel is the German jester par excellence. A prankster and provocateur in a world that was - and remained - out of joint. A mischievous play about the power and impotence of art in the misery of the times. A celebration of free play in circumstances in which man became a helpless plaything. For the aufBruch outdoor ensemble, Till's pranks are a scenic examination of the gap between self-confidence and self-dramatization, fun and unconscionability, quick-wittedness and deviousness.

"In me you have one you can't count on."
