Old people. Their last homes are in homes. At one time, they possessed energy, led private and social lives – and now their bodies only feign to be that which they used to be.
Slivers of experience, talks that do not get beyond the edge of the bed, bruises, which can be explained as the result of the nursing staff’s “affection”. Dreams turn into nightmares, one is being consumed from within.
The young German playwright Katja Brunner (born in 1991) lays bare that which is not pleasant to listen to – the voice of helplessness, penetrating our ears uninvited and with great urgency.
By their appearance, attire and behaviour, the audience is obliged to adhere to the accustomed practice expected from them when attending a theatre performance.
