No risk no fun! 8 new monologues, written by 8 European writers taking on the wide open notion of the project of Europe in today’s world. This three-way co-production, originated by TAK Theater Liechtenstein, partnering with Deutsches Nationaltheater Weimar (Germany), Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg (Luxembourg), sharing responsibilities.
The cast is divided between 2 Liechtenstein actors and 2 ensemble members of the Nationaltheater Weimar. My director colleague for 4 of the 8 monologues is Rafael Kohn from Luxembourg, rehearsed in Weimar, while I plugged away in Liechtenstein. Set and costumes were built in the Weimar workshops, and for the last two weeks of rehearsals everyone came to Liechtenstein to put it all together.
We opened in Liechtenstein on September 14th to great acclaim.
