WESTLICHT PRESENTS: AUSSER DER REIHE

TAREK LEITNER AND THOMAS BERNHARD
DIE TOTALE ORDNUNG
21.03.2019, 7:30 PM

In German language

"The further you approach a poet, the more you move away from him." Thomas Bernhard

Tarek Leitner: "If we try nonetheless to find out, why Thomas Bernhard's characters fail in their pursuit of absoluteness, we engage with the author at the same time. On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Bernhard’s death and inspired by the book co-authored with Peter Coeln, Hilde & Gretl, the evening will be about how DIE TOTALE ORDNUNG (absolute order) can be achieved and how we – like Bernhard’s protagonists – fail to succeed. The absolute play, the absolute building, the absolute order – an ever recurring motive of his characters, and a path leading to catastrophy ever again”.

Admission 18 Euro (15 Euro for WestLicht Members) - a contribution to support WestLicht. Please register with baumann(at)westlicht.com
