it is still a little timid on the huge Quarterpipe, the stage designer Simeon Meier in the hall has lifted: she's from the future back to hurl in our presence, to tell of how terrible everything will be if we tear the rudder, now.
"at that Time, before the climate war, we lived right over there, a normal family," she says in the vernacular: The 17-year-old Nellie Hächler, from the Theater Neumarkt for this role as a post-cast apocalyptic Kassandra name Vaju, who lives in Männedorf, and visited the Stadelhofen cantonal school; the Fridays-for-Future for you (yet) Saga of a vain resistance.
is Closely integrated with Zurich's reality
For Vaju already In your life there is a before and after of the great Explosion. Before, "we have looked at us, "snow white" at the Schauspielhaus and hoping that everything will be of itself good".
A witty remark by the 1982 in Aarau-born author, film-maker ("Tempo Girl") and theater Director Dominik Locher as his character in the mouth: He has interwoven his now self urine szeniertes Drama, "Kids of No Nation – K. O. N. N." closely with Zurich's realities. And that at the time of the "K. O. N. N."Premiere is just a few steps away from the Neumarkt theatre, on the peacock stage, this Grimm would run in's tale, was known.
climate of youth is also placed on the theatre top.
However, The peacocks-"snow white" portrays in the children's version of the destructive greed of the people. And in its Version for adults, the Chose in retrospect, after a climate Apocalypse, what else? (Click here for critique)
children's theater – for which the Neumarkt, under the new management trio of merit put a full way of in-house productions – seems to be without the Subject of climate at all possible. Just climate youth was "elected" to the German-Swiss word of the year, and you will also be placed on the theatre top. That Suna Gürler, who is responsible for the children - and youth theatre at the Playhouse, decided to purchase for the classroom piece of "Greta", speaks volumes (click here to go to the meeting).
The topic, contrary to Toots to us on all channels: There is no question that climate change is progressing and devastating consequences – and we all-more or less - and idly on it stare like the rabbit at the snake. A question, however, is what can bring a climate theater – in the fond of the young actors make their appearance get.
The struggle for water
In Dominik puncher piece of water scarcity is a dominant Problem. The lake is walled in and the water for the poor is almost priceless; it comes to riots, and a nuclear disaster. The trees are dead, the water poisoned, and a struggle to Survive. A men gang, and a woman gang go on the rampage through the ruined streets, a more brutal than the other.
For many, the following applies: connect or perish. Vajus father is murdered, her mother depressed, her little brother in a children's camp put. The son of the men's band leader, in turn, Mika – Alireza Bayram, with a bit of verquältem dialect, but more pronounced presence on the stage is trimmed for violence. Only with time the two lost children together in search of the mysterious Kids of No Nation, seeking somewhere behind the seven mountains without self and lust of life and to a new earth to build.
violence and delicate water colors-animations
no, for nine-year-old, like from the Theater Neumarkt advertised, is too violent, what the two game reenacten joyful "Back to the future"-travellers on the boards, ten or eleven years old should be the audience. Even if the punch direction is stunning and delicate images for the ever-present fragility: As animation filmmaker Joana Locher here live a water - and oil-based paints, animates the cosmos and the wall and the floor of the supple multi-functional Quarterpipe projected, has a spell that makes almost the hard stuff to forget.

As gloomy Black-and-swells on the white ramp, in between the flowery Yellow save on, lit the medicinal plant. Then again, zigzag deadly fences on the wall, before a green Paradise unfolds. The 1991-born film composer Matteo Pagamici breathes to live a kind of magical Indian flute sound. He creates acoustic escape points in the Chaos of the climate disaster – and in the cross, the good piece, the wood cut-like Good and Evil is distributed, and its dramaturgy according to script-the basic course seems to have screwed together: from crisis to comic relief , to crisis, to a Happy End.
For the adult audience moved to the evening, while expected ability abrollte to expected ability – in spite of the aesthetic moments of happiness, and in spite of the sympathetic look spielerduos. At the Premiere of the nearly one and a half hour staging resulted in a conversation with a climate activist: This rocked almost more than a puncher story of doom and utopia. Because it was the living proof of how much we know and how little we can as individuals do ().
To 4. January.
