A Capital(ist) Mistake, starting from Ödön von Horváth’s Kasimir und Karoline goes to the perennial questions of Faith, Hope, Love to as far into the future as 2150, when the blending of biology and the emerging nanotechnologies promises the human race an almost endless lifespan. True to his principle (known to our theatregoers from the production Neosummerfolk), director Ivan Panteleev sooner than just telling us a story, focuses once more on opening up a vast and emotionally saturated space for thinking, where essential are complexes of themes and the intuitive associations between them, rather than the storyline and the narrative. Central to this space is again the actor working towards the moment of unity, towards that moment of communication with the spectators, when the shared experience becomes much more important than the lesson that can be learned from it.
Just as unemployment is the main factor behind the labour market and penury paves the way for the capital, infidelity remains the greatest spur in love.
