"Terror" at Kammerspiele Vienna

"Terror" by Ferdinand von Schirach
directed by Julian Pölsler

Fighter pilot, Major Lara Koch, has shot down a plane that has been hijacked by a terrorist. The plane is heading for a stadium of 70,000 people. Koch’s pragmatic decision – one in which she breaks constitutional law – is to end the lives of 164 people on the plane rather than allow the terrorist to slaughter a far greater number. At the end, the audience must vote: guilty or not guilty.
The cast is exceptional chosen - all characters are placed by women.

Definitely a must see!

Martina Stilp-Scheifinger (Biegler, defence)

directed by Janusz Kica
premiere on 6 October 2016 at josefstadt theatre in Vienna - don't miss it!

 

"A Difficult Man" is light-hearted, comic and thought-provoking. Its central character, the Count Hans Karl Buehl, is "the difficult man," both seeking and running away from love, caught between action and inaction and forever undecided. The play questions the value of words in true expression and the nature of communication in society - the misunderstandings that ensue are a pleasure to behold.
