Eine Jugend in Deutschland

A work for actors and puppets based on the novel by Ernst Toller
Director: Jan-Christoph Gockel

Ernst Toller and his generation are robbed of their youth by the First World War. Furious and with desperate courage, they try in 1918 and 1919 to give a devastated country a political and human perspective. In Munich in 1919 a soviet republic system of government consisting of workers' councils is formed. The assembly of 50,000 people secured democratic rights in public, and formulated what had previously never been considered. But the temptations of totalitarianism are too large. What's new dies. The production inspects the messages in bottles of an outrageous past.
