Volksbühne Berlin am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz

Service / No service

by René Pollesch

To be in any way connected with the world around you obviously doesn’t hit the nerve of time. It doesn’t. Of course, it is provocatively exaggerated to say that it’s not in keeping with the times anymore. And that we can’t connect our individual fate to the fate of the whole world any longer. No. There is no hope. I’m positively optimistic about that. In the past, thinking about death I used to think “Pity, I sure gonna miss out on a lot of interesting things that will happen after I’m gone.” But then you enter a bookstore and the sales assistants don’t seem to know what they’re selling, not even what’s inside. And the bloke in the cinema who is selling the ticket to you is not even sure which film is shown. And finally a great sense of tranquillity is beginning to take hold. Like when you come up with some hilarious joke but you’ve been lying on the sofa and the ball pen is thirty feet out of reach. It’s not at all difficult then to convince yourself that the joke is not really that funny. Or that things are not as nice. Or that anything is important enough to not forget it just as fast.
