Ödipus

Sophokles / Roland Schimmelpfennig

A deadly plague is raging in Thebes. It is said that only the atonement of a blood debt can prevent the impending doom: King Oedipus must find the murderer of his predecessor Laius in order to save Thebes - and in doing so inevitably reveals an ever more terrible entanglement of guilt and innocence, of fate, freedom, power and betrayal, at the center of which lies the secret of his own origins.


Even two and a half thousand years after it was written, Sophocles' "Oedipus the King" still exerts an unfathomable attraction. Something akin to us in this story never ceases to appeal to us. Following this idea, the production, which is characterized by mask play, accompanies a group of enigmatic beings in their exploration of the story and an increasing approach to its characters, themes and indeed: Secrets. The initial strangeness gives way to ever greater closeness and a maelstrom that spans time and space and revolves around the most fundamental and perhaps most disturbing of all questions: What is man?

After the premiere, we invite all guests to the premiere party with Risto in our theater tent!
