“Where do we go from here”

 

Freely adapted after Dante Alighieri, Meat Loaf & Britney Spears
Based on a translation by Thomas Vormbaum
Staging: Christopher Rüping

*** More shows in February and March 2023 ***

And now, let’s imagine that we’re nine years old and meet the love of our lives. We don’t really meet her – we just get a look. But we’re stunned. At 18, we see her again: a greeting (not a kiss) from her, from far away. And actually that’s it. No word, no contact. But we will dedicate our whole life to this love.

The Italian writer Dante Alighieri felt this all-embracing longing. The 700th anniversary of his death was commemorated in 2021. The jury of the 2022 Berlin Theatertreffen wrote about this production: “The topics are true love, death and missed moments. And how they can sometimes generate art. A courageous, surprising evening of virtuoso acting and music that grabs us by our (post pandemic yearning for encounter and new beginnings, aims for our hearts and hits the bullseye.” With the Bochumer Ensemble, Christopher Rüping embarks on an exploratory journey through Dante’s world of love and that of his pop-cultural heirs, from Britney Spears to Meat Loaf. Love is everything.
