The Little stands on a pedestal in front of the Neumarkt room, nevertheless, you hardly see it in the crush of the crowded foyer. But then, into the Boy returned cheerful "Hello" and "Once upon a Time" and jumps with us through the mirror into the Wonderland of the theater (Aurel Kuthy, a stage and film veteran), with his 13 years already. The doors to a fluid reality open.
The world in the room, however, is not, as in the case of Alice, white rabbit and playing card kings is populated, but by people in strange States. Since Jacob Starks Waddah draws, for example, between the stranded Flüchtlingskahn on the ramp, and distributed in the space room chairs Waiting to be lost back and forth.
"life is just a few steps away, very close, but it is impossible," analyzes the soldier reluctantly – Waddah is a forced the Syrian army, its precarious Position recruit. He flottiert somewhere in the ostsyrischen city of Deir ez-Zor, which is under siege at the time for two years, without a net, cut off from everything. Life? "It is impossible": Even the language is garbled and rough; the Syrian playwright Lubna Abou Kheir has nothing smoothed.
With a lot of meaningless stubs, bits and pieces, also operates the gloomy stage of the Zurich-based costume designer and set Designer Sophie Reble: The elongated space has a little effect of a cold dream landscape, full of mysterious characters and Trigger, like a surreal poem. Director Ivna Zic, author Abou Kheir and Designer Reble, young women all, imagine a piece of presence on the stage, as the seis have fallen out of time. A sinister fairy tale.
Reble has scattered in the empty darkness said black folding chairs, black boulders, telling of war and destroyed houses, and the white boat. In the rear, a poison green fabric curtain, and suddenly, flashing neon lights rays of ice blue. In addition, Google Maps is sending us via the on-screen time through Zurich, through Syria, but also, for example, by Croatia: cities, roads, areas push here on top of each other, borders become blurred. Everything shimmers. That we are sitting in the horseshoe very close to this different world, makes us almost giddy.
"Broken light" was the headline for the piece, premiered in 1992-born Syrian playwright, which made about three years ago, Zurich to your home, as the Situation in Damascus was difficult for you. In Arabic, the "Qaus quzah means" and Schiller says the colors of the rainbow, the fragmenting reflections of light in the many individual droplets, as the Media explained book. And fragmented is not just the look of the staging.

fragmentation and isolation, the figures dominate: The 21-year-old Maya from Syria, sitting in Zurich in a "vacuum" and waiting for the papers – Anna Hofmann indicated in bright red Shorts, your longing for the start of the new life, the never falls. Your mother sits again in Istanbul and waiting for the tug. And if Sascha Özlem Soydon in her dark Robe on and runs out like a captive Panther, whose eyes have become tired of his curiosity, if she makes her daughter's serious allegations, and chain smokes, then she is a modern Queen of the night.
The tractor, in turn, fantasize of journeys through distant lands and times and waiting for the money: Rachel Sternberg is a mephistophelean figure, who can roll over all the boundaries and takes you away, if you have what to Pay, and it was your soul. Waddah, of course, nowhere to go: He's dead; his Whatsapp messages are all that is left of him.
The relationships are deutscht in the "Broken light" is rather indicated than out. It's supposed to.
watch Without in the leaflet to "Broken light" in and get it to the idea of posthumous Postings not a hundred percent. Other content releases makes the night really clearly. Since the eight scenes add up to an iridescent "arc from Damascus to Zurich," as the subtitle. But many relationships are more likely to deutscht indicated as. This will be such: In the broken light, you see things clearer.
the Zurich-based Director does not want to capture the Text, with its open, recurring motifs and tame. It seems to him afterwards, sneak up more quietly; you don't slow down the reverberation of Kheirs language, but listen closely. The composer and bass player Matija Schellander has opted for a more electronic sound, wild, in the the associations proliferate. Finally, Ivna Zic and Lubna Abou Kheir politics, no Propaganda, no political Peptalk operate, and let the voice images free your flower.
"climate problem makes me Laugh."Maya in "Broken light"
And gradually, one observes: one's own story of addiction has been undermined in this way, subtle. Because there is no melodrama distracts, gets some of the set here is a large train station in our head. "The climate problem makes me Laugh that people are afraid of paper or cardboard, which is getting thinner and thinner, and you will have no problems with people who come in every day, getting thinner and thinner and die", says about Maya. "That's why I'm going to demonstrations: I feel luxurious."
Ok, a bit more history of the powder would not have harmed us story junkies already fitted and also secure. But we felt for this beautiful country in terms of luxury – under the spell beaten by a 70-minute, sparkling Poem about the chasms of our time.
