EXODUS 2008

Aufgeführt im Mai 2008 in Malta, Catania, Wien und München. Mit freundlicher Unterstützung durch das Kulturreferat der Landeshauptstadt München, das Österreichische Ministerium für Europäische und Internationale Angelegenheiten und die Außenministerien Frankreichs und Deutschlands.

EXODUS is a joint theatre project consisting of six companies from Poland, Austria, Germany, France, Malta and Italy. They aim to create a regular schedule under the umbrella of a common corporate identity.

The production is asking for cultural identity, for "Promised Lands" and what people do to get there. There are no actors on stage. On stage there are "real" people, presenting their real life stories: A veteran of the Albanian UÇK, who has fought in the Kosovo War for his Promised Land and has paid a big price for this. An African immigrant who came to Europe with the exodus of "Boat People", crossing the sea under perilous circumstances. An active marine of the Maltese Navy who has participated in numerous patrols and search-and-rescue-missions. A southern Italian whose native language is an ancient Greek dialect, currently only spoken by a few hundred people; veritable heritage of the Magna Graecia that has been founded in southern Italy by the Greek colonists in 800 B.C.

Jerusalem is the icon of all Promised Lands; the focus of the three monotheistic religions, the main arena of their conflict. Polish director and actor Maciej Adamczyk will take our audiences live on a guided tour to the Holy City: Equipped with a camera and a transfer mode system, Maciej visits Jerusalem's most important sites and interview people he meets on the street.

Musik: Live-elektronisch prozessierte Solo-Violine, Nélida Béjar
