›staubkinder‹ is inspired by the music of gustav mahler and is dedicated to the staubkinder that we are. they are deeply embedded in our individual and universal memories.
in ›staubkinder‹ (children of dust) we let ourselves be carried away into an absurd and confusing world. a world similar to ours, with the critical aspects of the present, today’s complexity and this uncertain space called future. the children of dust are looking for a hold – the ground on which their feet stand is foreign to them. disturbing and poetic at the same time…

premiere 7 dec 2022

»in ›staubkinder‹there is no inflated drama, but such an unsparingly clear view, also of the fears and crises that threaten to overwhelm us in our present. a really powerful piece. it takes time until the audience can free itself from such a kind of bias. and then cheers.« frank schmid, rbb-kultur
