an evening at schaubuehne about 6 weeks ago: an berlin | tel aviv coproduction "third generation“. they are performing it again tonight.
from a film about the project and a discussion, both happening after the performance, i learned this: a group of actors from germany and isreal – there either with jewish and arabian roots – had met to this project. they led discussions about the relationships of these groups – these discussions they transformed into this stage performance. i thought this is a very inspiring concept, very well executed, tragical, painful at many points, but even with good humour. a touching experience.
i felt the need to post these sketches now after hearing the latest news. to me the performance was an example of thoughtful human attitude in contrast to brute force. and a cure against simplification and nationalism.
