Kasimir und Karoline

©Reto Schmid

By: Ödön von Horváth
Staging: Leonie Böhm

“Love is an action, never simply a feeling.” (bell hooks) – Ödön von Horváth’s Kasimir and Karoline describes what an economic crisis does to a romantic relationship, and how this intimate connection is ultimately destroyed. In Leonie Böhm’s production, the focus is less on observing the life and loves of the petty bourgeoisie, but rather on searching for Kasimir and Karoline within ourselves. How does one come to a particular position, how does one remain personal and sensitive and close to one’s own impulses? Like children who have grown old, Leonie Böhm and three performers take a look at themselves, with a big dose of fantasy, but drawing on their own life experiences. Children in adult bodies stand onstage, young men open up to each other and play out their relationships with each other piece by piece. How old do we have to be to discover ourselves anew?
