Presentation

Show of Christoph Marthaler, Anna Viebrock and the Volksbuhne's troupe

With Bekannte Gefühle, gemischte Gesichter (Familiar Feelings, Mixed Faces), Christoph Marthaler makes his personal farewell to the Castorf Era at Berlin’s Volksbühne. This show uses many songs to produce a meditation on what happens to artists as they are used up: what do sell by dates mean?

At the same time, the evening is an exhibition of a variety of Christoph Marthaler’s productions and a collage of music by composers including Handel, Satie, Mahler and Schubert. Designed by Anna Viebrock, the museum space (modelled on the Kunstmuseum in Basel) contains unpacked crates of art exhibits. Or as it turns out to be, the performers who have helped to perform Marthaler’s many productions, now put on pedestals as exhibits. While trying to find an exit – they start inventing their own world of nonsense, music and joy.
