Focus Dimiter Gotscheff 2014

When Dimiter Gotscheff died last October, the German-language theatre lost one of its keenest thinkers, an uncompromising denier of the Zeitgeist, intransigent, strict, concentrated, existential.

But he was also “Oma” (Granny), as he called himself, of the Gotscheff theatre family, which included his wife Almut Zilcher as well as Margit Bendokat, Samuel Finzi and Wolfram Koch. Following the jury’s decision to invite his final production, “Zement (Cement)”, the festival has decided to focus on the work of this pivotal theatre artist. Apart from presenting three productions from the years 2005, 2006 and 2011 in addition to the scheduled programme, set designer Mark Lammert will exhibit his own portrait drawings of Dimiter Gottscheff. In a video lounge, visitors will have access to films and documentations of Gotscheff’s productions. As a prelude after the performance of “Zement” on 3rd May, there will be a concert called “Mitkos Lieder (Mitko’s songs)” under the musical direction of Sandy Lopičić, who composed the music for various productions of Dimiter Gottscheff.
