World premiere of "A Letter to Heiner Müller" from Croatia
Dec 6, 2012 to Dec 9, 2012
|Location||66 East Fourth Street
New York City, NY
|Details||In the La MaMa return of Zagreb Youth Theatre of Croatia, a man plans and delivers a speech--a letter to the late activist playwright Heiner Müller--within the highly controlled and monitored space of Berlin's Tegel Airport. The play, "A Letter to Heiner Müller" (Pismo Henieru Mülleru), reflects the discomfort of living in strictly controlled conditions, where locations like a hotel, metro, street or office are places of modern control and fear. Written by Goran Fercec (Croatia), directed by Bojan Djordjev (Serbia), the piece is performed by three actors, who roam from one control point to another in today's reality like Kafka's Josef K. Zagreb Youth Theatre is one of Europe's leading cutting-edge ensembles, whose last La MaMa production was described by Time Out as "a theatrical punch to the gut."
