Of fathers and sons

An intergenerational theatre project by the Junges DNT (Young DNT) · World Premiere

Seven people enter the stage. Only some identify with the term male, but all make use of the pronoun »he«. They push shelves, pull open drawers of memories, enlarge them, squeeze themselves into gaps, try to look at and question their gender and socialization. They examine what masculine attributes their fathers passed on to them: silent or angry absence, love, ability or inability to show emotion. What do they like to pass on and what definitely not? The audience is invited to witness the generations' conversations about themselves and each other.

Fathers, sons and grandsons between the ages of 20 and 72 are on stage. They go in search of traces of experienced and lived images of masculinity. The theater becomes an archive of lived memories in which the players are repeatedly confronted with the question: »When is a man a man?«

»Stephan Mahn führt umsichtig Regie und die Laiendarsteller mit Dramaturgin Angelika Andrzejewski zu einer höchst bemerkenswerten Leistung. (…) Sieben Individualisten finden über ihr engagiertes Spiel zu einer geschlossenen Ensembleleistung. Sieben Männer, - jeder reflektiert, reagiert, interpretiert auf seine Art. (…) Das ist erhellend, mitunter vergnüglich anzusehen. (…) Minutenlanger Applaus belohnte ihren Mut, Inneres offen zu legen.«
