upcoming performances

A stage adaptation of Disgrace, a novel by J.M. Coetzee, the recipient of the 2003 Nobel Prize in Literature and two-time winner of the Booker Prize. In his novels, Coetzee intriguingly combines historical, social, ethical and existential themes. Among these, the creators of the performance are focusing on the question of responsibility and empathy, of ethical and imaginary boundaries and limitations. In the light of the recent debates triggered by the #metoo campaign, the violent relationships in the professional and private sphere described by Coetzee have become especially relevant. The performance is not a journalistic commentary on these events, but a reflection on the limits of imagination. It concerns both the sphere of ethics and of theatre itself.
