The play "Illusions"/"Crave" 

A diptych of love, its illusions and myths.

“Crave” by Sarah Kane

“Illusions” by Ivan Vyrypaev

Director: Felicitas Brucker

Costumes: Nadia Fistarol

Music: Arvild Baud

Cast: Barbara Horvath, Steffen Höld, Melanie Kretschmann, Thiemo Strutzenberger


Four young actors tell about the lives of two elderly couples. This is a story about love. Love is a simple thing, accessible to the very few. It has no rules or provisions. Love is a great strength. Love triumphs over death.


As a continuation of the previous story, dreams and reality, cruelty and the pain of memories, the search for eternal love, obsession and passion. Two couples talking about the strangeness and randomness of love.

The play "Karaoke Box"

By Ivan Vyrypaev

Director: Felicitas Brucker

Production by Michael Zerz

Costumes: Eva-Maria Lauterbach

Cast: Veronika Glatzne, Steffen Höld, Thiemo Strutzenberger

The play was first put on in cooperation with the Ruhrtriennale. In the play "Karaoke Box," named after an actual bar in Hong Kong, two friends (a male and female android) meet with each other and sing karaoke.

The humorously described story — told, it would seem, not by living beings — turns into an improvised conflict between technology and humanity, a clear pattern and the freedom of imagination.

"Karaoke Box" is the actual name of a place in Hong Kong, where Chinese families close themselves off in small cabins to drink tea and sing karaoke.

Raising the age-old questions of Biblical precepts, Russian playwright Ivan Vyrypaev shifts to the voice of his contemporaries, with their skeptical worldview and contradictory thoughts.

23th of May, 8 p.m. — The play "Illusions"/"Crave" (main stage)
24th of May, 7 p.m. — The play "Illusions"/"Crave" (main stage)
24th of May, 10:30 p.m. — The play "Karaoke Box" (“Winter Garden” stage)
