Corona Passion Play at the WOW Performance Festival

The Corona Passion Play opens the WOW Performance Festival on 15 October. This Festival is a newly created hybrid format by ANALOG Theatre that seeks to facilitate exchange and networking through this pandemic season and beyond, and to depict the entire spectrum of the independent performing arts. Following the live stream of the Vol. 3 Edition from the Schiffbau Hall, there will be an Artist Talk  with Nicolas Stemann on Zoom.

Co-director Nicolas Stemann’s Corona Passion Play present a modern tale of humanity’s suffering in times of Covid, analogous to the stations of Jesus’ Way of the Cross. The history of the work-in-progress project is as long as the pandemic itself. And like the pandemic, the Corona Passion Play, which began in the first lockdown with songs produced at home with homemade videos, has passed through countless stages and forms.
