Das Weinen 
(Das Wähnen)

© Gina Folly

Based on texts by Dieter Roth
Staging: Christoph Marthaler

Dieter Roth and Christoph Marthaler share a strong fondness of the weathering of the body, spirit and chocolate given the slow passing of time. Delayed by a few months due to the coronavirus, the first highly public encounter between these Swiss exceptional cases is now about to take place.
