Jonas Jagow

By Michel Decar
Prize winner of the Theatertreffen Prize for Young Dramatists 2012, sponsored by the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung

Premiere 16 March 2013

  • 2h, no interval

Jonas Jagow would like to extinguish the universe, but: “The universe is much too big, so at the moment, it is much too difficult for me to destroy it, for now, I will destroy Berlin.” His route leads him right straight across the city: from the shopping mall at the Gesundbrunnen to a techno club, from the bed of the queen of Tempelhof to a Lichtenberg brothel. Heroic epos, farce, melodrama and expressionist play: With exuberant exaggeration, author Michel Decar captures the image of a hedonistic society that reaches its limits through implosion.
