AIRY AFTERNOON

Romuald Krężel & Emmilou Rößling


AIRY AFTERNOON is time spent together in a way that feels a bit like unwrapping a present from a stranger - someone who doesn’t know you and you don’t know them either. It’s still a present though and we have prepared it for you, hoping it won’t disappoint. Admittedly some things in this are pretty blown up, everything will be a bit bigger than reasonable. 

 

Concept & Performance: Romuald Krężel, Emmilou Rößling

dramaturgical advise: Lea-Maria Kneisel

A studioNAXOS Production in cooperation with the Hessische Theaterakademie.

 

Premiere: 13. October 2017, studioNAXOS Frankfurt am Main

 

 

„When all the lights in the empty theater are lit, a white sheet with the word ‚FIN’ comes down from above. The end! Applause! In this last image of an empty theater, in which lights are switched on only to emphasize the emptiness even more, there is something unbearably sentimental - but in the face of current political changes and terrifying cultural policy there is also a sinister element in it. I might be abusing my subjective perspective here however. After all, the last inventory is not a goodbye to the the building Olimpia - nobody is going to break or destroy it (for now). The stage is still working. Duncan, Krezel and Rößling perfectly show that each end gives a chance for a new beginning. I would like to add: and vice versa.“
