HUNTER-TOMPSON‐MUSIK combines movement, scene, dialogue, narration, music collage, song and light design into a 70‐minute stage play. In the center of the production the self‐titled text of the Berlin author Judith Hermann from the storybook “Sommerhaus, später ” (1998 S. Fischer Verlag). On display is the story of Hunter Tompson, a resident of a run‐down New York hotel, an asylum for the elderly, of his inspirational music and an unexpected encounter with a young woman that will turn his everyday life upside down, with an uncertain outcome…
“I found the ‚melange’ of drama and eurythmy quite unique, (…) through the fluid changes of roles, this mixing and merging (…) pleased and enlivens and satisfies …” (from the premiere in Hamburg 5.11.17 / C.G. Berlin)
