Tod eines Praktikanten

DEATH OF AN APPRENTICE - Written and directed by René Pollesch

“…those who refer to the gestures of critics do not actually know what they are doing, for example, when they speak ‘for’ others. Maybe the others do not need someone else to speak for them. Above all, it is always supposed that they do not even have a language of their own. Then representation comes into play. But they do have a language. Only it is not white, heterosexual, masculine and middle class, and it is always rejected as inadequate. This reminds me of what Donna Haraway says: apparently only Greenpeace and European and American scientists can speak about the rainforest, but not the people who live in the rainforest. A theatre play that deals with the so called underclass, and is considered a theatre of representation, basically portrays the differences with the middle class sitting in the auditorium and playing roles on stage.”
