Cassandra im Casino

Cassandra - one of the most disregarded women in Greek mythology - sheds the role that is assigned to her in operas such as Vittorio Gnecchi's "Cassandra" (1905): The seer no one believes.

An intensive examination of systemic questions of oppression mechanisms, which draw on self-written texts and Christa Wolf's research. The team creates a burlesque counterworld in which Cassandra, as the landlady, invites the audience to take a seat at her table and to actually listen to Cassandra this time...
