Volksbühne Berlin am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz

Cappuccetto Rosso

Written and directed by: René Pollesch

In “Cappuccetto Rosso”, Maria Tura, Poland’s greatest actress, loses her magic while rehearsing “The Nazischickse”. It was her only chance to get happiness. And money. And she asks herself: “But I don’t have to deal with bourgeois crap like inspiration and all that, do I now?” This Prater production belongs to the series “Heterosexuality, Representation, Middle Class … and Everything Else That Is Not Yet Considered To Be A Problem”. It is also about representation theatre, that form of theatre in which social conflicts are represented and reduced to their exhibition value, but cannot be processed.
